February 24, 2018

CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) — Authorities say a Massachusetts man who drove his pickup truck over a seawall and into the water in Rhode Island has been charged with driving under the influence.

Police say the truck crashed into the water late Friday near the Rhode Island Yacht Club. Police identified the driver as 42-year-old Tom Moitoso of Taunton.

Moitoso was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and his truck was towed from the scene.

No one answered at a number listed for Moitoso and it was not immediately clear Saturday whether he has an attorney.
