Sister of Rehoboth man killed in recent car crash looking for changes at intersection



A local woman is hoping for changes after a 30-year-old Rehoboth man died in a single-vehicle crash, which occurred in that town shortly after midnight on May 15th.

Christopher Frank was operating his 2022 Ford F150 pickup truck on Pine Street in the area of Walker Street, when the vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree. First responders were called to the scene around 12:15 a.m. via the vehicle’s emergency onboard crash detection system. When they arrived on scene, they immediately began CPR and rushed Frank to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, where he was pronounced deceased.

There is somewhat of a sharp curve on Pine Street in the area of where the crash took place leaving Frank’s sister, Melissa Faloon, wanting changes so other families don’t receive the same call her family received.

“The intersection where his accident occurred had no warning to drivers of the dangers. There were no signs, no barriers, no lights- absolutely NOTHING. He was a resident and business owner in Rehoboth- so I have started a free petition to empower the town, as a first step, to make this intersection a three way stop. I would greatly appreciate if anyone interested could please sign and share the petition. It is so important to me that no other family receives a call from the MA State Police like I did that morning.”
