TIVERTON, R.I. (AP) - Police say a 19-year-old man has died following a fatal accident involving a sport utility vehicle and a motorcycle in Tiverton.

Fire officials say the accident occurred around 5 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Main and Pond Bridge Roads.

Police say the man died after his Honda motorcycle struck a Ford Explorer.

Tiverton Fire Department Chief Robert Lloyd says the accident, which he called “pretty significant,” remains under investigation by police.

Police say a 56-year-old Little Compton woman was driving the SUV. They say there is no word on her condition at this time, but she did survive the crash.

A police accident reconstruction team was on-scene working to determine a cause.

Neither driver was identified pending notification of their families.
