Man killed in Exeter crash identified
The state police have identified the man who was killed in a single car accident early Sunday morning.
Manuel G. Lopes, 37, of Norwich, Conn., was found after a caller notified the state police of a Toyota Camry that had crashed on the side of Route 165/ Ten Rod Road, in Exeter.
State police Cpl. John Keenan said when troopers from the Hope Valley Barracks responded, they found the car against a tree, near the intersection of Summit Road.
After the subsequent investigation, the police say Lopes was heading west on Ten Rod Road and lost control about 900 feet west of the Summit Road intersection.
The car veered off the road, partially rolled over, and then struck a tree. The car then came to a rest right-side up. When rescue arrived, they found Lopes partially ejected; he was pronounced dead on the scene. It’s not clear if he was wearing a seat belt.
Keenan said there were no witnesses, and there is no indication that alcohol was involved.
