State Police Investigate Fatal Crash on Route 95 in Attleboro
Preliminary investigation by Trooper Michael Isom indicates that Pasulayman Jeng, age 39, of Providence, Rhode Island was operating a 1996 Ford Contour on Route 95 northbound in the left travel lane. The vehicle lost control, going off the right side of the roadway, striking the guardrail. Jeng, who was not wearing his safety belt, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced deceased at the scene. A five year old male passenger from Providence, who was wearing his safety belt, sustained minor injuries in the crash and was transported by ambulance to Hasbro Hospital in Providence. The juvenile's name is being withheld due to his age.
This crash remains under investigation with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section. The Attleboro Police Department, Attleboro EMS and MassHighways assisted troopers at the scene.
State police are seeking information on an unknown red Toyota which may have been involved in the crash and left the scene. The State Police urge anyone who may have witnessed the crash or who has information on the red Toyota that may have been involved to call the State Police Foxboro Barracks at 508-543-8550.
Due to the investigation and vehicle recovery the right travel lane of Route 95 north and the ramp to exit 3 were closed for approximately two hours.
No further information is available at this time. Please do not call the barracks directly.
