By News Staff


Police have identified the man killed in a motorcycle accident in East Providence late Thursday night.

29-year-old John Cabral, of East Providence, was pronounced deceased on scene of the crash that happened around 11 p.m. on Interstate 195, just before Exit 4.

That exit was shut down for some time overnight as State Police investigated.

Police say speed may have been a factor and Cabral was not wearing a helmet. Alcohol does not seem to be a factor. 

The accident remains under investigation.
