 by TWIW StaffSeptember 3, 2021

WORCESTER - The Worcester Police Crash Reconstruction Team was investigating a motorcycle crash near Granite Street on Friday, September 3, when an officer at the scene arrested an unrelated motorist on firearms charges around 4 AM.

An officer at the scene had blocked Granite Street to enable the investigation into the motorcycle crash. A vehicle approached the scene at a high rate of speed, did not slow down, and drove past the cruiser at full speed and several hundred feet into the crash scene.

Members of the Crash Reconstruction Team ordered the vehicle to stop, which it eventually did.

Officers attempted to speak with the operator, Terrence Kenol, 24, of Worcester. Kenol refused to turn his vehicle off, roll down his windows or produce his driver’s license.

According to Worcester Police, Kenol suddenly reached towards the passenger’s seat and officers removed him from the vehicle.

Officers located a loaded handgun on the passenger’s seat.

Kenol does not have a license to carry firearms. He faces charges of:

  • Carrying a Firearm without a License
  • Improper Storage of a Firearm
  • Possession of Ammunition without an FID Card
  • Refusal to Produce License
  • Refusal to Pull Right and Stop for Emergency Vehicle.
