Two crashes in restaurant parking lot lead to arrest of Swansea man



Multiple crashes Saturday led to the arrest of a local man.

According to Sgt. James M. Casey, at approximately 4:10 p.m., Ptlm. Kandice LaGue responded to Dicky’s Clam Shack located at 14 Fall River Ave. in Rehoboth for a report of a motor vehicle crash.

When Ptlm. LaGue arrived, she began investigating the crash by speaking with the Manager of Dicky’s Clam Shack and a second witness to the crash.

Ptlm. LaGue learned that 55-year-old Ronald Wright of Taft Ave. in Swansea was driving a green GMC Sierra with Massachusetts registration plates.

It was determined that Wright made a left turn into the parking area of Dicky’s Clam Shack and in doing so collided with a sign located on the edge of the property line. After hitting the sign, Wright continued into the parking area where he backed into a parked motor vehicle.

Ptlm. LaGue then spoke with Wright. During their conversation, Ptlm. LaGue observed signs and symptoms of intoxication due to the consumption of alcohol. Ptlm. LaGue administered field sobriety testing to Wright. Following the tests, Wright was taken into custody without incident.

Wright was transported to the Rehoboth Police Station where he was booked and then released on personal recognizance.

He is due to appear in Taunton District Court on Tuesday on the charges of OUI Liquor, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and destruction of property under $1200.00.
