SEEKONK — A 25-year-old man died in a head-on collision on Route 152 early Thursday morning after a teenage driver apparently lost control of his vehicle, police said.

Shawn Nguon of Attleboro was pronounced dead at the scene of the 4 a.m. crash, which occurred in the area of 365 Central Ave. (Route 152), less than a half-mile from the Attleboro line, authorities said.

Nguon was a 2014 Attleboro High graduate, an honor roll student and a tennis player for the school.

The driver of the other car involved in the crash, a 16-year-old Attleboro resident, was taken to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence. He was the lone occupant of the vehicle, state police said.

His injuries were not life-threatening, according to Fire Chief Sandra Lowery.

Police Chief Dean Isabella said a preliminary investigation determined that the 16-year-old lost control of his car.

The vehicle then crossed into the opposite lane of travel and collided head-on with the other car, Isabella said. No charges were immediately filed.

The exact cause of the crash is under investigation.

Route 152 was closed in both directions for about four hours between Coyle Drive and Pond Street.
