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.
