Drunk Driver Strikes Utility Poles, Car

This report was derived from information from the Dobbs Ferry Department, it does not indicate a conviction.

A Yonkers man was arrested on Dec. 29 after allegedly hitting several utility poles in Hastings-on-Hudson before crashing into a car in Dobbs Ferry.

The Hastings-on-Hudson Police reported that several utility polls had been struck by a dark colored station wagon on Broadway around 8:17 p.m. in Hastings-on-Hudson. Shortly after that, a 1999 green Ford Taurus rear-ended another car stopped at the traffic light at Broadway and Cedar Street in Dobbs Ferry. 

Police said the 56-year-old driver of the Ford allegedly smelled like alcohol and was taken to police headquarters for sobriety testing, which he refused. He was charged with a DWI, a misdemeanor, and released without bail to a family member.

Never mind that the suspect smelled like alcohol, or what the sobriety test results were... This guy should never have had access to a car! The fact that access to obtaining a drivers license, and purchasing a car is just as easy as getting issued a Kohl's credit card is the real problem... let's at last lift up our voices and be heard, CARS KILL! Until we are able to federally regulate who can and can't purchase a car, this problem isn't going away.
