PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A Republican candidate for Rhode Island governor has released one of several documents requested by media organizations since he revealed he was responsible for a car crash that killed a man 25 years ago.

Cranston Mayor Allan Fung released four pages of his application to the Rhode Island Bar on Monday to The Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/1jDLCIY ). On the application, he discloses the accident.

However, his campaign has yet to release other documents requested by The Associated Press, including his Massachusetts bar application.

Fung's arrest record for the 1989 accident was sealed in the 1990s. He told the Journal he would not ask to have them unsealed.

Fung was never charged and says no drugs or alcohol was involved. He says he lost consciousness and hit a man changing a tire.
