Raynham: Wareham man dies in Route 495 rollover accident

State police are continuing their investigation into a rollover crash Tuesday night just before 7:00 that shut down the southbound side of Interstate 495 in Raynham for more than two hours.

The driver, who was ejected from the vehicle, a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo, was pronounced dead at Morton Hospital in Taunton.

He has been identified by police as 21 year old Kristian Joel Rose, Junior, of Wareham.

Witnesses told state troopers investigating the accident that a silver pickup truck seemed to be following the Isuzu Rodeo in an aggressive manner just before the crash, and may have cut off the driver, causing him to roll over his vehicle.

Troopers later located and arrested the operator of the pickup truck in Halifax, charging him with operating under the influence of alcohol and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

He is identified as 48 year old Michael Davis.

Police are still trying to determine what role he may have played in the fatal accident.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
