    What does an SRT-4, DWI, and 150+mph have in common?

    This guy:


    April 28, 2010, 11:20AM

    Oneida, NY -- A man state police said was driving at more than 150 mph was charged with driving while intoxicated after he crashed his car early Sunday morning on state Route 46 in the city of Oneida, state police said today.

    Shane M. Crolick, 20, of Bradford Corners, was also charged with unlawfully fleeing a police officer, having a BAC greater than 0.08, reckless endangerment and many vehicle and traffic violations.

    Troopers first became aware of Crolick when he passed a state police car about 3:20 a.m. on Route 46 at 153 mph, troopers said.

    The trooper began pursuit but Crolick’s car, a 2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4, continued going north on Route 46 at a high speed, troopers.

    The car struck a guard rail at Mount Hope Boulevard and became disabled, troopers said. None of the three passengers in the car were injured and they were not charged.

    At the time of his arrest, Crolick had a blood alcohol content of .12, troopers said. The SRT-4 is a sport compact car that was produced in limited quantities by Dodge, troopers said. While a standard Neon will not surpass 125 mph, the SRT-4 reached 153 mph in road tests conducted by Car and Driver magazine in 2002.

    Crolick is scheduled to appear Friday in Oneida City Court.

    Nothing to discus

    Stupid is as stupid does and his friends are just as stupid for letting him do it while they were in the car.

    People like THIS are why our insurance rates are higher.

    i heard about this from my going to be brother in-law thats a trooper for herkimer. he gets all the fun stuff to do.

    and what i dont get is how this kid went so fast. come on its a neon. it must be an srt-4 thing. i lost my camaro because a 17yr old kid driving one of these. he was doing over 80 on a main road and couldnt slow down so he hit me. i got pics. pics are kinda blurry from me shaking and my old school crappy camera phone.

    Poor camaro and sti... I was on my way home from school and some srt4 neon packed full of kids wouldn't get off my ass then drove up on the side of me reving his motor... I left it alone cause there were cars around and I could tell that his car was tuned and straight piped so I probally would've lost anyway... so his dumbass decides to floor it and nearly rear ended a bus...lol
