A driver had a blood alcohol concentration more than double the legal limit when he was involved in a one-vehicle crash on I-287 in the Hudson Valley, state police announced.
In Rockland County, New York State Police troopers responded to the reported crash on I-287 at approximately 10:20 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11 in Hillburn, where there was a Jeep disabled in the left lane.
Police said that the investigation into the incident determined that Nyack resident Fredy Mazariego Martinez, age 37, was driving his 2021 Jeep Cherokee when he unexpectedly lost control, struck the guardrail and his vehicle became disabled.
While investigating the crash, police said that it was determined Martinez was allegedly intoxicated.
