DWI crash

A 57-year-old Troy man faces multiple charges including driving while intoxicated following a single car crash in North Granville Wednesday afternoon, May 25.

David E. Cooney’s blue Saturn station wagon failed to follow Upper Turnpike as it curves out to the west to meet Route 22 near D & K Automotive and drove over an incline and into the trees, police said.

Cooney was charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated as well as misdemeanor third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and the infractions of moving unsafely from a lane and failing to use the designated lane, police said.

Witnesses reported Cooney tried, unsuccessfully, to drive his vehicle back up the slight grade it skidded down at the end of the road, adding he staggered, having difficulty walking as he left his vehicle.

A resident who declined to provide her name said she did not see the crash, but shortly afterwards watched as Cooney came into her driveway and tried to gain access to her car using his car key.

No one was injured in the crash. A passenger in Cooney’s vehicle was taken from the scene by police, but not charged.

Cooney was released with an appearance ticket for Granville Town Court. North Granville and Penrhyn fire fighters as well as Granville EMS, the Washington County Sheriffs and State Troopers responded to the scene.
