A Westchester resident was arrested for DWI following a single-vehicle crash in which a telephone pole was split in half.

The crash took place in Southern Westchester late Friday, May 6 in the city of Rye.

Rye Police responded to a one-car motor vehicle accident occurring on the Boston Post Road in the area of Cedar Street.
