West Bay

WEST GREENWICH, R.I. (WPRI) – A 45-year-old man from New Hampshire was killed in a single-car crash on the highway early Saturday morning, according to Rhode Island State Police Lieutenant John Charbonneau. 

Troopers form the Hope Valley Barracks, as well as members from the West Greenwich Police and Fire Departments were called to I-95 South near Exit 6 around 3:30 a.m.

An initial investigation showed that a car driven by Jason Reid, of Concord, New Hampshire, was passing the Route 3 overpass, when somehow he lost control of his vehicle.

He then went on to the right shoulder of the highway, hit a large rock structure and rolled over.

Reid was taken to Rhode Island Hospital where he was pronounced deceased a short time later.

The accident remains under investigation.
