A New Rochelle man has been charged with DWI in the fatal crash that killed his passenger on Saturday.

Alan Roth, 63, who was also injured in the crash, was charged with a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated, said New Rochelle Police Capt. Cosmo Costa. 

The crash occurred around 10 p.m. Saturday on Pinebrook Boulevard, a residential street just east of New Rochelle High School. New Rochelle resident Robert Hopkins, 49, who was in the passenger's seat, was killed.

The crash brought down power lines onto the vehicle causing it to burst into flames.

Costa said the crash is under investigation.

Hopkins, who attended Archbishop Stepinac High School and Iona College, worked as a vice president and senior project executive for American Express and IBM. He also was an avid golfer, and wine connoisseur who loved to entertain.
