A 25 year old man was arrested by Rhode Island State Police Friday for multiple hit-and-run accidents throughout the state.

Jose Espada of East Greenwich fled the scene of the first crash in Cranston before causing two more in Providence, fleeing from those scenes as well.

He was found in Warwick after another hit-and-run in the area, trying again to flee the scene.

Police say he was driving while intoxicated and under the influence of a controlled substance.

He was arraigned this morning at the State Police Lincoln Barracks.
