Crash kills Ashaway man


GROTON — An Ashaway man was killed when he was ejected from his vehicle after it struck a guardrail on southbound Interstate 95 Tuesday night.

Connecticut State Police identified the driver as Keith W. Bowers, 44, of 11 Beech Hill Road.

Although still under investigation, police said Bower, driving a 1997 Ford Explorer, was driving south of Exit 90 at about 11 p.m. when his vehicle left the travel portion of the roadway and struck the metal beam guardrail off the left side of the highway. The vehicle reportedly rolled over several times before coming to rest on its roof in the right lane.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact Trooper Chivers at Troop E, 860-848-6500.
