Police say a Warwick woman was drunk as she drove on Post Road and veered onto oncoming traffic, leading to a head-on collision that injured four people, including a young girl who is in critical condition. Police said Saturday that 48-year-old Jeanette Lawrence refused a chemical test after the Friday night crash. Authorities have charged her with driving under the influence and refusal to submit to testing. The two drivers and a third woman, who was a passenger, were taken to Rhode Island Hospital with serious injuries. A girl who was in the car struck by Lawrence’s vehicle was in critical condition at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence. (AP)
