Crash, four times the legal limit and DWI

COLONY – Colonie Police responded to Albany Street for a single vehicle crashing into multiple telephone poles and discovered the driver had a BAC four times the legal limit.

According to reports, the driver of the vehicle, a 25-year-old Schenectady man, showed signs of intoxication and had injuries from the crash at 4:42 a.m. on Saturday, April 27.

He was given a series of sobriety tests and tested positive for breath alcohol on a pre-screening device. The device reading at the scene was 0.374 percent BAC. Although this device is not calibrated and cannot be used as evidence in court, police use the measurement to determine whether the individual should be taken into custody and undergo a calibrated test at the police station.

In this case, the man had such a high BAC and other injuries that he was taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital for treatment. The threshold for DWI in New York is 0.08 percent BAC and anything over 0.25 BAC is usually considered dangerous and requires medical evaluation, depending on police department policy.

Blood was taken at the hospital to determine the alcohol content in his blood.

The man was charged with DWI, a misdemeanor, and ticketed for drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle, failure to keep to the right, speeding and failure to stay in one lane. It is likely that charges will increase if the toxicology reports come back.

The man was ticketed for May 6 in Colonie Town Court.
