The Providence Journal and Channel Ten have just reported that Charlestown Police arrested Terri Serra, Chariho Committee member from Richmond, following the horrific car crash that injured four Chariho students, two of them critically.

According to news reports, Charlestown Police are charging Ms. Serra with "failure to give aid," a misdemeanor. According to the accounts, Ms. Serra went to the accident scene and was seen by a witness exiting her car and yelling at one of the boys. Then, according to the account, she left without rendering any kind of assistance or calling 911.

Serra was released from custody on her own recognizance.

Serra was charged by Richmond Police on Tuesday under the state's social host law on Tuesday.

We hope to get you the Charlestown Police statement shortly.
