According to police, the crash occurred on the northbound lane of the road. Laflamme sustained minor injuries and was immediately transported to Westerly Hospital for treatment. Jones sustained serious injuries and was also taken to Westerly Hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time later. Authorities are still investigating the incident.
