The Hopkinton town manager suffered serious injuries in a two-car crash late Tuesday night on Cape Cod that left a 69-year-old woman dead.
Anthony J. Troiano, 51, was driving a 2004 Hyundai sedan east on Sandwich Road at 11: 18 p.m. when he tried to pass another vehicle and struck a 1999 Toyota sedan head-on, according to a release from State Police.
The driver of the Toyota, Lilija Berents, was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from her car. Berents, of East Falmouth, died at the scene. Troiano, of East Sandwich, was rushed to Tobey Hospital and later transferred to Rhode Island Hospital, where his wife and two grown children went to his bedside.
Troiano became the town's first manager in January when Hopkinton changed its form of government. We are just keeping our prayers with his family and hoping for good news, said Muriel Kramer, the chairwoman of Hopkinton's Board of Selectmen.
