NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — A North Kingstown High School student was taken to the hospital Friday morning after she crashed her SUV into a house.
Police said the car veered off Old Baptist Road around 6:30 a.m. and crashed into the front porch of a nearby home.
The driver, who was the only one inside the vehicle at the time of the crash, told officers she was driving, but couldn’t remember what led up to the crash.
She was transported to Rhode Island Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
In a letter to parents, North Kingstown High School Principal Barbara Morse said the victim is a student there.
Morse said there will be guidance councilors on hand Monday to connect with any students who need them.
“As a school community, we are here to support the family but also our staff and students,” Morse said.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation, though a neighbor tells 12 News people typically drive fast down this road.
Anyone who may have information regarding the crash is asked to contact the North Kingstown Police Department Detective Division at (401) 294-3316 ext. 8211.
