EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (AP) - A police officer is among two people dead following a wrong-way crash on Interstate 95 in Rhode Island.

Rhode Island State Police say Jamestown patrolman Ryan J. Bourque was killed in the crash, which happened at approximately 12:07 a.m. Monday on I-95 South in East Greenwich.

Police say the 24-year-old patrolman was heading home to Coventry after finishing up his 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. shift when his Dodge Charger was hit head-on in the high-speed lane by a Toyota Camry being driven the wrong way by 23-year-old Dejae T. Pizarro, of Bedford, Massachusetts.

Pizarro was also killed.

State police continue to investigate.
