September 20, 2012

PAWTUCKET — The driver of a rental car apparently missed a turn and crashed into the outside of an apartment building near the intersection of Division Street and Brewster Avenue on Tuesday just before 11 p.m., Pawtucket Police said.
According to Sgt. Roy Clary of the Traffic Division, the man who rented the vehicle told police he had been out drinking at a bar and asked two men who he had befriended there to drive him back to where he was staying. He said the men dropped him off at the requested address, but then remained in the car and drove off.
The driver first clipped a vehicle in Central Falls, and then, pursued by that motorist, headed down Brewster Street where he failed to negotiate the turn at Division Street, striking the apartment house. The two unidentified men then exited the vehicle and fled the scene, Clary said.
