State police nabbed an area man for alleged drunk driving after he crashed his vehicle in the front yard of a Putnam home.

The incident took place around 8:30 a.m., Sunday, April 14 on Tammany Hall Road in Patterson after he reportedly lost control of his vehicle and crashed his 2012 Mercedes, said Trooper AJ Hicks.

When police arrived on the scene of the crash, they arrested Miguel E. Vegavega, 35, of Carmel, for DWI, said Hicks.

The homeowner, Peter Clarke, said the crash woke up the neighborhood and that his front yard has been the site of several crashes.

Clarke was able to snap a couple of photos of the vehicle before it was hauled away.
