UXBRIDGE, Mass. — Police say a Rhode Island man involved in a traffic crash in Massachusetts earlier this week has died.

State police say 41-year-old Richard Unwin, of Woonsocket, died at a Worcester hospital on Wednesday night.

Unwin suffered extensive injuries when his pickup truck veered off the northbound side of Route 146 in Uxbridge and hit a tree at about 9 a.m. Monday.

A family friend tells The Telegram & Gazette that Unwin died after being removed from life support.

Unwin worked at UMass Memorial Medical Center as a sterile processing technician. He leaves a wife and two sons.

The crash remains under investigation.
