A 33-year-old woman has been charged with DUI for her part in a serious head-on crash in Cranston that injured three people, according to authorities.

Police identified the woman as Amanda Evora, of Cranston, adding that she is also facing charges for refusal to take a chemical test and driving with a suspended license.

Authorities said they responded to a crash involving two cars outside a car dealership near 44 Gansett Ave. Monday night around 11:30.

"It was a loud bang. That was it,” Pat Sirabella, who lives in the area, said. "I was on my computer. I had my headphones on and I heard it. My wife woke up, too. She was in a dead sleep."

Police said the woman was driving a black car and collided with a man driving a white car.

"I just saw smoke,” Sirabella said. "It was just a commotion going on. Everybody else was coming out of their houses and stuff, too."

Authorities at the scene told NBC 10 both drivers were rushed to the hospital with what are believed to be serious injuries. NBC 10 was also told a passenger in the black car was treated for minor injuries.

The conditions of both drivers weren’t immediately known, but authorities said they should be OK.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
