An SUV driver was killed in an early morning crash involving a deer in Rhode Island, according to state police.

Troopers responded to Route 295 southbound in Johnston around 5 a.m. Friday, where they found a GMC SUV rolled over on its passenger side just south of Greenville Avenue after hitting a deer.

The driver of the SUV, who wasn't identified, was ejected because he or she wasn't wearing a seat belt, and died at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.
