Rhode island state police investigate fatal crash on route 146 – two dead, one seriously injured
NORTH SMITHFIELD -Two people died and a third was seriously injured in a single-car
crash on Route 146 North about 2:10 a.m. today.
Rhode Island State Police Captain Matthew Moynihan said the car was headed north on
Route 146 when it went off the road and into the grassy median, striking a guard
rail and rolling over several times.
Al three occupants were ejected from the vehicle.
Karissa Harrison, 24, 27 Spring St., Johnston, and Henry Feliz, 30, of 1 Glasgow
St., Providence, were pronounced dead at the scene.
A third occupant was transported by North Smithfield Rescue to Rhode Island
Hospital with serious injuries. His name has not been released.
Captain Moynihan said it is unclear who was driving at the time of the crash. Speed
appears to be a factor. None of the occupants was wearing a seatbelt.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation by troopers from the Rhode
Island State Police Accident Reconstruction Unit and Scituate Barracks.
