LINCOLN, R.I. (AP) - State police have released the names of two people killed in separate accidents on Route 146 a few hours apart, including an 89-year-old woman who was driving the wrong way.

Col. Steven O’Donnell says Marie Simone, of Warwick, was killed at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday after she drove the wrong way onto the highway in Lincoln and crashed head-on into a vehicle driven by 30-year-old Joseph Brophy of Burrillville. Brophy is at Rhode Island Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Four hours prior and a few miles away in North Providence, O’Donnell says 28-year-old David Salois of Burrillville was killed when he was hit by a tractor-trailer. Witnesses told police Salois stopped his minivan in the breakdown lane, then stepped directly in the path of the tractor-trailer.
