A Hackensack man was drunk when his car knocked down a utility pole at a busy Hasbrouck Heights intersection, authorities said.
The 2001 Audi Quattro driven by Dmitriy Sidorenko, 50, went off the road on Boulevard at the Passaic Avenue Circle shortly before 8 p.m. Wednesday.
The vehicle sustained heavy front-end damage and the pole needed to be replaced by PSE&G, Detective Lt. Michael Colaneri Jr. said.
Sidorensko, who wasn’t seriously injured, received several summonses, including having an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle and refusing to take a breath test, in addition to the DWI charge, Colaneri said.
Summonses also included no insurance or up-to-date inspection, he said.
The vehicle was impounded and Sidorensko was released to his mother, Colaneri said.
