Motorcyclist involved in fatal accident may be charged with more offenses: Johnston police

The Johnston Police Department in Rhode Island, in cooperation with the Johnston medical examiner’s office and the state Attorney General, is set to decide whether 64-year-old John Palermo, who has already been charged with two felony counts of personal injury resulting and driving to endanger for his involvement in the death of two individuals and the injuring of one other in a motorcycle accident, should face additional charges.

Palermo allegedly crashed into a propane grill at a pig roast along Angelico Street on August 19, causing an explosion that killed two and hurt another.

Johnston Police Chief Dan Parillo said on Wednesday, November 2 that if Palermo, who is also facing charges of one misdemeanor count of driving to endanger, personal injury resulting, and finally a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving, should be found out to have directly caused the deaths of the victims in the motorcycle accident, more charges would be heaped on him.
