Police ID man killed in rollover crash on I-195 in Dartmouth

SE Mass

DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — A Connecticut man died following a rollover crash Wednesday morning in Dartmouth.

Massachusetts State Police say they responded just before 5:30 a.m. to I-195 between Exits 11 and 12 and arrived to find a 1996 Toyota Corolla in the woods.

The victim — identified as Ruben Rivera, 28, of East Haven — was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

The preliminary investigation revealed Rivera was speeding in the left lane when, for reasons still unknown, he swerved to the right, causing the car to leave the highway, hit a tree, roll over and eject him from the vehicle, police said.

The right lane and shoulder were blocked off for about two hours as police processed the scene of the crash.
