BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (WPRI) — Burrillville police are investigating a fatal accident that happened just after midnight on Sunday.

Col. Stephen Lynch said the department received a call at 12:35 a.m. that a Jeep had crashed in the sand pits off of Munyon Trail, located on state property within the town.

When investigators arrived on scene they say the Jeep, driven by a 19-year-old man from Rockland Mass., had gone into the sand-based hill in the area before rolling over.

A passenger in the front seat, only being identified as a man from Mass., suffered serious injures as a result of the fall and rollover.

He was life-flighted to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, Mass., where he was pronounced deceased.

Police are still investigating the crash and no other details are available at this time.
