Police ID man killed in rollover crash

Posted: Updated:

A Massachusetts man killed Thursday morning following a rollover crash in Providence has been identified.

Police said Joseph C. Hickman, 56, of Blackstone, Mass. was killed when his truck broke through the Hopkins Park fence at the Route 146 off ramp near Admiral Street at about 10:30 a.m.

Police said the man's pickup truck rolled several times and he was thrown from the car.

"The driver, we believe, was not wearing a seatbelt because he was ejected from his pickup truck," said Lt. Eric LaRiviere of the Rhode Island State Police.

No other cars were involved in the crash.

"The road was not a factor. The ramp was not a factor. The road conditions were dry as far as we could see. It was just human error," LaRiviere said.
