A fatal car crash occurred last night at the intersection of Lincoln Street and Route 44 in Seekonk.  The crash occurred around 6:04 pm.

The two deceased victims have now been identified as Robert and Winifred Langevin, both of whom were 70-years-old and resided together in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

The initial investigation into the crash has revealed that Mr. Langevin was driving a 2004 Corvette with his wife, Winifred, in the passenger seat. The Corvette was stopped at a stop sign on the northern section of Lincoln Street.  At the same time, a 2017 Jeep Wrangler was being driven eastbound on Route 44 by a 25-year-old woman.

Multiple witnesses told police that the Corvette attempted to cross Route 44 onto the south section of Lincoln Street just as the Jeep Wrangler was approaching the intersection.  The driver of the Jeep Wrangler applied her brakes and attempted to swerve out of the way of the Corvette, but had no opportunity to do so as the Corvette had cut right in front of her vehicle.

First responders rushed Robert Langevin to Rhode Island Hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased.  Winifred Langevin was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash.  The driver of the Jeep was transported to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

It does not appear at this time that any criminal charges will be filed in connection to this incident.  Investigation continues.
