Rehoboth Teen Identified as Victim in Fatal Berkley Rollover Crash
Dylan Quinn died as a result of injuries suffered in that crash, the D.A.’s Office said. The crash occurred at about 7:30 a.m. in the area of 76 Myricks Street.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Quinn was the passenger in a Mazda pickup driven by another 16-year-old boy. The D.A.’s Office said the two had just left a nearby Dunkin’ and were en route back to the driver’s home when the truck struck a telephone pole and a tree before rolling over and coming to rest in the middle of the roadway.
Once first responders arrived on the scene, Quinn was rushed to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, where he was pronounced deceased. The driver was taken to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening.
The D.A.’s Office said the investigation into the crash is ongoing.
Quinn was a junior at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Vocational Technical High School, who played on the varsity ice hockey and lacrosse teams. He had just made 32 saves the night before in a 2-1 overtime loss to Diman Voke.
Bristol-Plymouth Superintendent-Director Dr. Alexandre M. Magalhaes posted an announcement on the school’s website alerting the school community to the tragic loss of a student, although he did not name Quinn directly.
He stated counselors will be available in the school cafeteria Monday morning and in the coming weeks for any member of the school community who requires their services.
