WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — A 60-year-old man died after his car collided head-on with another in Warwick Wednesday evening, according to the Warwick Police Department.

After an initial investigation, police said it appears the man was driving his Nissan down Main Avenue around 5 p.m. when his car crossed the center line and struck a Honda head-on.

The man was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries, according to police.

The driver of the Honda, identified by police as a 46-year-old man, was also transported to the hospital and is currently in stable condition.

Police said it’s unclear at this time what caused the 60-year-old’s vehicle to apparently cross the center line, however, witnesses told investigators he was driving erratically prior to the crash.

Police also said there is “currently no evidence of alcohol or drug use at this time.”

According to police, the collision was captured on video surveillance and is being used to assist in the ongoing investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the crash and has any additional information is asked to contact the Warwick Police Department Traffic Division by calling (401) 468-4344.
