PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Republican candidate for Rhode Island governor has released part of his 1995 application to practice law, which describes a fatal car crash he caused as a college student.

Cranston Mayor Allan Fung released four pages of his application to the Rhode Island Bar on Monday in response to a request by The Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/1jDLCIY ) for records stemming from the accident. The bar application asked applicants about their criminal history.

Fung publicly revealed the accident two weeks ago.

Fung said he lost consciousness while driving and hit a man who was changing a tire on Interstate 95 in Cranston in 1989, when he was 18. He said drugs and alcohol weren't involved and a grand jury declined to indict him. He had his arrest record sealed in the 1990s.
