Mayor Avedisian talks Sam’s Club, RIPTA crash

(WPRI/AP) – Mayor Scott Avedisian joined Eyewitness News This Morning on Tuesday to discuss the recent Sam’s Club closure and the RIPTA bus crash.

Officials say the driver of a public transit bus that crashed into a building may have suffered a medical emergency that also caused him to strike a telephone pole, toppling it.

Warwick police said 51-year-old Richard Avedisian and two bus passengers were taken to the hospital with serious injuries following Monday night’s crash. A third passenger left the scene but later was interviewed by police.
