WOONSOCKET, R.I. (AP) -- A 48-year-old Woonsocket man was killed yesterday when he lost control of his car and crashed head-on into another car driving in the opposite direction.

James Earl Hanson was pronounced dead at Landmark Medical Center. Police said Hanson swerved across the center line of the road and struck a car driven by Tamara Barr of Pawtucket.

Barr was extricated from her vehicle and taken by ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital. Her injuries were not life-threatening, and she was in fair condition last night. Police said speed was a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.
