Motorist Strikes Three Men, Drives Mile With One On Windshield

A 30-year-old Rhode Island man is charged with leaving the scene of an accident after authorities say he struck three men standing on the side of a highway and drove more than a mile with one of them stuck on his windshield.

Rhode Island state police say the three men were checking for damage following a fender-bender on Interstate 95 early Sunday when the man, Christopher Swiridowsky, came along and drove into them.

Police say the motorist drove a mile and a half with the man on his windshield and stopped only because he was being followed. He then fled on foot, but was found hiding in his home.

Yesterday, he was ordered to remain in jail for allegedly violating bail from another case.

Police say the man who was stuck on the windshield has two broken legs and a broken arm. Another one of the three men struck also has serious injuries.
