Warwick teen killed in car crash

Posted: Updated:

A teenager from Warwick died Tuesday night after his car slammed into a post and overturned on the Kings Highway Bypass in Chester, police say.

According to investigators, Richard Lodovichetti lost control of his Dodge Neon shortly after midnight and drove down a ditch, ultimately hitting a post and landing about 75 feet away.

Police say drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played a role in the crash. Instead, investigators say speed and human error are to blame.

Neighbors say Lodovichetti's father also died in a car accident several years ago, leaving his wife alone to raise four children.
