Police recently arrested a 21-year-old Connecticut man who they say was drunk behind the wheel when he crashed into a tractor-trailer.
Troopers at the East Fishkill barracks of the New York State Police charged Vincent E. Logue, of New Milford, with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated.
The accident occurred at about 4:15 a.m. Saturday on eastbound Interstate 84 in Southeast. Logue, who was driving a 1993 Honda Civic, is accused of "merging unsafely" and colliding with the truck.
He was transported to Danbury Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.
Officials were unable to provide a blood-alcohol level Tuesday because they are awaiting the results of a blood test.
Logue is due Jan. 29 in Southeast Justice Court.
