  • Wrong-Way, DUI Drivers Injure, Imperil Weekend Travelers in EG, Warwick

    RI Trooper Log arrests. The Rhode Island State Police are stationed in several barracks

    The Rhode Island State Police are stationed in several barracks throughout RI.

    WARWICK — RI State Troopers arrested two people for DUI in separate wrong-way driving crashes overnight Saturday with no serious injuries resulting, a fortunate outcome given the recklessness of the drivers involved, according to Colonel Ann C. Assumpico, Superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police.

    “The actions of those wrong-way drivers created extremely dangerous situation for every person on the road last night,” Colonel Assumpico said. “Given all of the celebrations taking place this weekend, with proms, graduations, Mother’s Day and other events, we are extremely fortunate that no one was killed or seriously injured as a result,” Assumpico said.

    The first wrong-way crash last night was reported at about 7:20 p.m. on Rte. 4 in East Greenwich, where a motorist was heading north in the high-speed southbound lane. It crashed into another car travelling south in the high-speed lane.

    The driver, Corey Stott Miller, 28, of 276 Weeden St., Pawtucket, was arrested and charged with:

    • Driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs, first offense, B.A.C.  unknown
    • Driving so as to endanger, resulting in physical injury
    • Refusal to submit to a chemical test

    Miller was treated at Kent County Hospital for minor injuries. The driver and a passenger in the car Miller crashed into were treated at South County Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and released.

    The second wrong-way crash was reported at about 2 a.m. Sunday, after State Police received numerous 911 calls for a wrong-way driver heading south on the northbound lanes of I-95. The wrong-way driver sideswiped a car as it headed into Warwick before crashing in the high-speed lane near Jefferson Boulevard.

    The driver, Cameron Wambolt 25, of 306 Washington St., West Warwick, was arrested and charged with:

    • Driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs with a B.A.C.  of .15 or greater (Phase I – .187; Phase II – .197)
    • Driving so as to endanger, resulting in physical injury

    Wambolt was not injured in the crash. Two people in the car Wambolt crashed his car into were treated at Rhode Island Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and released.

    In a third, unrelated incident, Troopers also arrested Tommy Price, 43 of 110 B. Columbia Heights Road, Charlestown, after stopping his vehicle on Interstate 95 in Warwick. Price was charged with:

    • Driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs, first arrest, B.A.C.  unknown
    • Refusal to submit to a chemical test.

    “There is simply no excuse for anyone to be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” she said. “We have zero tolerance for people who drive while impaired or those who operate their vehicles in a dangerous manner that endangers the lives of others. We will arrest any motorist who selfishly decides to put others in harm’s way by doing that.”
