Lincoln police officials said the car crashed through a side entrance and drove into the building.

Police said school had been let out earlier in the afternoon and no students were hurt.

Carmel Mendoza, a school secretary, said she and another employee tried to pull the man from the car after it crashed and burst into flames. Mendoza identified the driver as a special education teacher's aide, but police have not released the victim's identity.

WPRI-TV in Providence is reporting the driver was a school employee who had just been fired.

RI teacher's aide ignited himself after crash





PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- A teacher's aide who died when he crashed his car into a high school last month lit himself on fire immediately after the collision, according to a report from the state fire marshal released Wednesday.
The report said Jay Paul, who worked as a special education teacher's aide at Lincoln High School, drove his car into the front of the one-story brick building, then used a butane lighter and an "ignitible liquid" from a gasoline container to commit suicide.
The report said the 34-year-old Paul was identified through dental records and said he died from smoke inhalation and burns. Students had been dismissed about an hour before the Oct. 3 crash.
The fire consumed Paul's clothes and the car, and spread to the school, where it damaged two small classrooms and the walls, ceiling and floors of a hallway.
The report does not indicate whether Paul intended to hurt anyone other than himself.
School officials have refused to discuss the case, and a phone message left at the superintendent's office was not immediately returned Wednesday.
