Police: Both NY Drivers In Head-On Crash Were Driving Drunk
GREECE, N.Y. (AP) — Police say both drivers involved in a head-on crash on a suburban Rochester road were drunk behind the wheel.
Authorities in the Monroe County town of Greece say two vehicles collided around 5:15 a.m. Saturday. Officers say both drivers — a 33-year-old Rochester man and a 39-year-old man from Greece — were both charged with driving while intoxicated.
Police say a search of the 33-year-old man's car turned up .38 caliber handgun that had been reported stolen in 2009 in the nearby town of Gates. He was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon. He was sent to the county jail on $10,000 cash bail.
The other driver was issued an appearance ticket and released.
