Cranston woman, 54, killed in Warwick moped crash

Posted

A 54-year-old Cranston woman was killed after her moped crashed on Post Road in Warwick late Monday afternoon.

The woman – whose identity was being withheld pending notification of family – was pronounced dead after being transported to Kent Hospital, according to Warwick Police.

Officers responded to the scene near 3393 Post Road just after 4:30 p.m. following reports of an accident with injuries. Upon arrival, police found the moped in the roadway and bystanders tending to the operator.

Police say an initial investigation determined the moped was traveling north on Post Road when the operator lost control. As a result, the moped struck a curb and then a stone wall.

“At this time it appears speed/alcohol/distracted driving were not a factor in this accident,” a statement from Warwick Police reads.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Warwick Police Traffic Division at 468-4344.
