2 Teens killed in Rollover Crash in Exeter

EXETER, R.I. (AP) – State police say two teenage girls from Warwick have been killed in a one-car crash in Exeter when their vehicle rolled over into the woods. Two girls survived.

Lt. Kevin Hawkins says the car tried to navigate a turn on Purgatory Road around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday but swerved and rolled over. He says one girl was pronounced dead at the scene and the
other died at Rhode Island Hospital.

Hawkins says the victims, 16 and 17, were not wearing seatbelts. The driver was partially ejected from the car and pinned beneath it.

Two other girls in the car, also from Warwick, were unhurt. Hawkins says they were wearing safety belts.

He says the car's speed has not been determined and that alcohol does not seem to be a factor.
