The Rhode Island State Police have reported the arrest of Evan Baptiste, a 23-year-old man from Worcester, Massachusetts, for drunk driving in the wrong direction resulting in a crash early Sunday morning. A 911 call alerted the police of Baptiste’s Honda Pilot traveling southbound on Rt. 146 North. The Honda then collided head-on with a Hyundai by the Rt. 116 off-ramp and caused the Hyundai to hit a Mercedes due to the impact. Officers suspected Baptiste was under the influence and he was taken into custody for several charges, including DUI, reckless driving, and four counts of driving to endanger resulting in physical injuries. The occupants of the other vehicles suffered minor injuries and were hospitalized, while Baptiste was unhurt. He was taken to the Lincoln Woods Barracks for processing and detained overnight awaiting arraignment.
