Officer Ed Berdecia found Nicholas D. Moy in the driver’s seat of the 2007 Toyota Scion — the engine running, headlights on — just after it struck a concrete barrier at 5 a.m. Sunday, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo said.
“His eyes were bloodshot and he could not recall details of the collision,” Pentangelo said. “When asked for his paperwork, he could not provide proof of insurance.”
Taken into custody, Moy, of Peark River, registered more than .12% on a breath test, nearly twice the legal limit, he said.
Moy was released to a responsible adult pending a hearing on charges of DWI, careless driving, failing to observe a sign and driving an uninsured vehicle — which Pentangelo said was impounded.
