A man who died in a vehicle rollover accident on Sunday at Worcester-Providen Stern Pike in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, was identified by state police as 31 years old from Bellingham.
According to state police, Robert Virodeau III was sentenced to death on the scene after being expelled from the car. According to a statement from state police spokesman David Procopio, police do not believe he was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
A 35-year-old Milville man, a passenger in Birodeau, was released from the truck by an Axbridge firefighter and was seriously injured and taken to U Mass-Lakeville Hospital. Police say he was wearing a seatbelt.
The state police responded to the crash of Route 146 north of Exit 3 at around 3:25 pm, and the scene was cleared just before 7:00 pm.
Police say Virodeau lost control of his Chevrolet Silverado for reasons still under investigation. The truck left the edge of the road, hit a guardrail, and then returned across all lanes before hitting the jersey barrier and guardrail on the other side of the road.
According to police, the impact caused the truck to float in the air before rolling down the embankment and rest under shallow water.
Investigation is in progress.
