Two Killed in Fatal Car Accident in Westport

Two motorists were killed this past Tuesday afternoon in Westport. The fatal car accident, which occurred on Route 195, involved two-vehicles.

One of the drivers, a 75-year-old resident of Fall River, suffered severe injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The other motorist, a 61-year-old woman from Somerset, was airlifted to Rhode Island hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, the woman succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital later that evening.

The accident occurred at approximately 4:25 p.m. According to the preliminary investigation, the individual from Fall River was traveling in the eastbound lane of Route 195 in a Nissan Quest when the vehicle crossed the grass median onto the westbound lanes. The Nissan then struck the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox being operated by the Somerset women.

The accident caused that section of the highway to be shut down for approximately two hours. The Massachusetts State Police are currently investigating the automobile accident.
