    A Rhode Island man has been charged with reckless driving for allegedly causing a nine-car pileup on Interstate 95 in Connecticut that snarled traffic for hours and injured three people, including a baby.

    Connecticut state police say 28-year-old Marco Nunez of Providence was speeding and driving erratically when he caused Saturday morning's wreck in the southbound lanes in Fairfield.

    The Connecticut Post reports  that a station wagon struck by Nunez's rental car rolled over several times. Seven other cars were damaged.

    An 18-day-old baby and two adults from West Haven in the station wagon were taken to Bridgeport Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Authorities also treated several people at the scene.

    It's not clear if Nunez has a lawyer. A phone number for Nunez couldn't be found.
