Cranston Man Charged with DUI in Highway Fatality

A 21-year-old woman died after she jumped from a car on Route 95 around 3 a.m., the State Police said. A 48-year-old Cranston man who was behind the wheel is being charged with driving under the influence.

Forty-eight-year-old Joseph Aloisio of 3 Kiki Circle, Cranston, has been charged with driving under the influence and refusing a chemical test after a 21-year-old woman riding in his car jumped out on Route 95 and was killed.

The Rhode Island State Police said the accident occurred in the southbound lane near the Washington Street overpass. Highway lanes were shut down for about an hour-and-a-half during the police investigation.

The woman has been identified Erica Moul of Smithfield and police said it appears that she jumped out of the car. Her cause of death has not been determined, although she was not struck by any vehicles on the road.

Aloisio is free on $1,000 personal recognizance after being arraigned earlier today. He will return to court Feb. 10.

One of the biggest issues for me is the fact that it was drinking that led up to this tragedy and I just hope, from the bottom of my heart, that Joe realizes how this situation could have very likely ended differently if it weren't for that factor. And I really hope he does something to change because it's been a problem for him for awhile. I just hope he does something to fix it. If not for himself than for Erica.

He has always had more then one girlfriend and I can personally tell you he had a live in one another one and like 3 or four on the side young girls...It's sad that this young girl had to loose her life for anyone to come and say anything about him he has always thought he was above the law!

Truth this is a quote from the court papers. Shows how wrong you were about him having bllod on him, helping her, stopping cars. Bunch of lies. He may have gotten away with this by the law but, GOD DOESNT LIKE UGLY!! Look below he didnt even get out of his vehicle!!! Police said Moul jumped out of the car on Route 95. At the scene, Aloisio appeared drunk and did not get out of his vehicle, according to police reports
