WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — Warwick police said a 31-year-old man died following a motorcycle crash early Saturday morning.
Officers responding to Warwick Avenue around 3:30 a.m. found a motorcyclist had struck a tree and was thrown from his bike.
The victim, a 31-year-old man, was transported to the hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Police say a preliminary investigation reveals the man hit a curb at the traffic island before the intersection of Warwick and Oakland Beach avenues, then struck a second curb before crashing into the tree.
Police also believe there was a second motorcyclist in the area at the time of the crash and are looking to speak with that person.
The crash remains under investigation though police believe speed appears to be a significant factor.
