Court strikes down limits on filming of police in Arizona

LINCOLN – A 28-year-old Woonsocket woman survived Friday night after an intoxicated man drove into her, head-on, from the wrong direction on Route 146, according to the Rhode Island State Police.

The woman was taken to Rhode Island Hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the crash just south of Route 116 late Friday night, said state police Capt. Jeffrey P. L’heureux.

An investigation found that the other driver, a 38-year-old Cranston man, had collided head-on with the vehicle driven by the woman, L’heureux said.

The man was arrested at the scene and taken to state police barracks in Lincoln, where a test measured his blood alcohol content at 0.187 and 0.183, L’heureux said.

He faces a charge of driving under the influence.

State troopers had set out to stop the man at 10:50 p.m. after 911 callers reported that someone was driving south in the northbound lanes of Route 146, L’heureux said.

Soon after, troopers arrived at the scene of the crash.
