The Rhode Island State Police announced on Saturday they are investigating yet another deadly crash— the third in three days.
At approximately 3:30 Saturday morning, troopers from the Hope Valley Barracks, as well as members from the West Greenwich Police and Fire Departments, responded to a single-vehicle crash on Route 95 South.
The investigation found that a 2010 Mini-Cooper, operated by Jason E. Reid, age 45, of Concord, New Hampshire, was traveling on Route 95 South in the Town of West Greenwich. After passing the Route 3 overpass, Reid failed to negotiate a left bending curve and veered right, consequently leaving the roadway.

He was transported to Rhode Island Hospital by West Greenwich Rescue and pronounced deceased a short time later.
