Police investigate fatal rollover accident

By: News Staff


A 42-year-old man dies in a rollover accident in Coventry, early Sunday morning.

The Coventry Police Department responded to the area of 266 Hopkins Hollow Rd, to a report of a car which had driven off the road around midnight.

Upon arrival, officers found the vehicle in the woods and on its roof.

The Western and Central Coventry Rescue crews used the jaws-of-life to remove the driver. They carried out life saving measures and transported him to Kent Hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased.

The accident is currently under investigation. Drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played a factor, but they suspect speed may have.

Police are not identifying the victim, pending notification to his next of kin.
