A driver has tragically been killed after an early morning crash.
According to Rhode Island State Police, at approximately 3:30 this morning, troopers form the Hope Valley Barracks, as well as members from the West Greenwich Police and Fire Departments, responded to a single vehicle crash on Route 95 South.
The subsequent investigation revealed that a 2010 Mini-Cooper, operated by Jason E. Reid, age 45, of Concord, New Hampshire, was traveling on Route 95 South in the Town of West Greenwich. After passing the Route 3 overpass, Reid failed to negotiate a left bending curve and veered right, consequently leaving the roadway. As a result, the vehicle entered the right shoulder, struck a large rock structure and rolled over.
He was transported to Rhode Island Hospital by West Greenwich Rescue and pronounced deceased a short time later.
The accident remains under investigation.
