CLAVERACK, N.Y. (AP) — State police say only a parked limousine prevented a car from crashing through a wall of a home along a rural upstate New York road.
Troopers say 30-year-old Christopher Crosby of Claverack was driving in his Columbia County hometown around 9:30 p.m. Thursday when his car left Route 9H on a curve, hit road signs and traveled about 150 feet before smashing through a limousine parked at the house.
Police say the car then slammed into the side of the home. Troopers say the car would have gone through the wall if it hadn't hit the limo.
Crosby wasn't injured. He was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated DWI for having a blood-alcohol content of .21 percent, nearly three times the legal limit of .08 percent.
It couldn't be determined if he has a lawyer.
