Update: Man killed in Exeter crash took URI classes
EXETER -- The state police have identified the man who died Tuesday when his car crashed into a tree on Slocum Road as Aram Adlparvar, a 21-year-old from California who was taking summer classes at the University of Rhode Island.
Adlparvar, who was living at 25 Quarry Road, Kingston, was returning home from URI’s Providence campus around 7:10 p.m., when his car struck a tree about 15 feet off Slocum Road, State Police Capt. James Swanberg said.
He was heading south on Slocum, which borders Exeter and North Kingstown, when his car left the road at a curve in the road.
Adlparvar died instantly, Swanberg said. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
“He was definitely going at a high rate of speed,” Swanberg said. Swanberg could not provide an estimated speed, but said the road was posted at 25 mph.
Weather and road conditions at the time of the crash were dry, according to the state police.
Adlparvar was the only one in the 1996 Subaru station wagon. There were no witnesses to the crash, Swanberg said.
Adlparvar, of Lake Forest, Calif., was taking two literature classes at URI this summer, but was not enrolled as a student, according to a university spokesman. His family, also from Lake Forest, has been notified.
