BREWSTER, N.Y. -- A Danbury man has been charged with driving while intoxicated after a two-car fender bender in Brewster on Sunday, April 3, state police said.

Elmer A. Hernandez-Quevedo, 23, was backing out of a parking space on North Main Street in the village when he struck the back end of a Jeep, police said.

State troopers investigating the collision charged Hernandez-Quevedo with aggravated driving while intoxicated, an unclassified misdemeanor.

Hernandez-Quevedo failed a field sobriety test and also provided a breath sample that showed he had a blood alcohol content of .20 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit of .08 percent, police said.
