Police: Driver crashes into Cranston building, faces DUI charge

CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) – A man accused of crashing his car into a Cranston building is due in court next week.

Police say the driver left a Comstock Parkway restaurant just after 9 p.m. Monday, then got into his car and sped across the street, striking the building which houses AccessPoint RI.

Police are not yet releasing the identity of the driver, but say he was treated and released from Rhode Island Hospital.  He is being charged with DUI.

Authorities have determined that the building is structurally sound, though it will require a lot of work to make full repairs.
