Rhode Island Man Dies In Wrong-Way Crash In Massachusetts

UXBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A Rhode Island man died in a fiery wrong-way crash on a Massachusetts highway over the weekend, police said.

Massachusetts State Police troopers responded to reports of a two-vehicle crash on Route 146 in Uxbridge at about 9:40 p.m. Saturday, police said in a statement.

The driver of one vehicle, Jonathan Marmol, 35, of Woonsocket Rhode Island, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 62-year-old West Boylston man, was treated at the scene for minor injuries. His name was not released.

The preliminary investigation indicates that Marmol was heading south when he crossed the median into the northbound lanes and struck the other vehicle, causing both to become engulfed in flames, state police said.

What caused the vehicle to cross into the wrong lanes remains under investigation.
