NEWPORT — Two people on a moped were injured, one seriously, after their vehicle and a Jeep collided near Island Wine & Spirits late Friday night.

The person who suffered the more severe injuries was transported to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, and the second individual was taken to Newport Hospital. Newport police did not identify the occupants of the moped in the report given to The Daily News on Saturday.

Police charged the Jeep driver, Grahm Lewis Sisson, 34, of Ojai, California, with driving under the influence resulting in an injury and leaving the scene of a police call, both felonies. He was cited for refusing chemical and breath tests, and failing to yield while making a turn. Sisson had an outstanding bench warrant from Second Division District Court.

Police were called to the area near Broadway and Bliss Road around 11:18 p.m. Dispatchers notified the officers that a red Jeep involved in the collision was fleeing the scene toward Friendship Street, the report stated. Officers approached the Jeep being “blocked in by a good samaritan vehicle who witnessed the collision.” A woman was behind the wheel of the Jeep, with her two children, ages 9 months and 2 years, secured in child seats in the back seat.

A witness told police a man was driving the Jeep at the time of the collision. The woman, who was not charged, admitted she only drove from the accident scene to where she was stopped. Police later drove the woman and the two children home.

Sisson displayed “slurred” speech and had an “unsteady gait,” the report said. He was taken to Newport Hospital to start the chemical test procedures. The report did not describe when he declined that test.
