Rhode Island’s attorney general said a teenager who caused a head-on crash that killed two people on the Pell Bridge last October will not face criminal charges. The Newport Daily News reported that Attorney General Peter Kilmartin has determined the case does not warrant criminal charges. Kathleen Meunier, 48, of Warwick and Kenneth Prior, 65, of Jamestown died after the Middletown teenager’s car crossed the center line and struck their car on the bridge between Newport and Jamestown. Kilmartin’s office said the teen was speeding at 63 miles per hour, but neither alcohol nor texting were factors in the crash. State officials have not identified the teenager.
