CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) - Cranston police say four people were taken to the hospital after a Friday night car crash that began with a domestic assault.

Police Chief Michael Winquist said the events began at about 6 p.m. when 22-year-old Steven McCarthy allegedly hit and threatened his girlfriend, then left his apartment in a car driven by his roommate, 22-year-old Devin Ford.

Winquist said Ford ran a stop sign and hit another car. That car then struck a pickup truck, flipping it on its side.

McCarthy, Ford, and the other two drivers had non-life-threatening injuries.

The chief said Ford is charged with misdemeanor driving with a suspended license and could face other charges. McCarthy is charged with simple domestic assault and disorderly conduct.
