Three people died in a fiery car crash on a Rhode Island highway early Tuesday morning, state police said. Troopers reponded to the scene of the single-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in West Warwick just before 2 a.m., police said in an emailed statement. According to the investigation, the sedan was traveling south at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control, veered off the road and onto the grass shoulder, struck a tree and burst into flames. After the West Warwick Fire Department extinguished the flames, troopers located the driver and two passengers inside the vehicle. They were all pronounced dead at the scene. Due to nature of their injuries, police could not make positive identifications of the victims, the statement said. All three occupants were taken to the state medical examiner’s office for confirmation of identification through dental records.
