A black Acura RSX hit a bus cease and utility pole, with the automotive’s occupants fleeing the scene.

A 27-yr-previous Yonkers man is accused of crashing on Sunday.

HARRISON – Police stated a Yonkers man was charged with driving drunk after crashing right into a bus shelter and utility pole and fleeing the scene in Harrison on Sunday.

Harrison police Detective Derka Abbate stated the 27-year-old man crashed on Westchester Avenue around 5 p.m. and left the scene. He was eventually caught, she said, and a Breathalyzer revealed his blood alcohol content was 0.26 percent. That’s more than three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Police responded to the eastbound side of the service road to Interstate 287, between access ramps to the Hutchinson River Parkway and 1133 Westchester Ave., and found a black Acura RSX that had knocked out the side of a Westchester County bus shelter and hit a utility pole. There was no one in the car when authorities arrived.

Abbate said today that they believe the driver, who was not injured, was the only person in the car. He was arrested around 8:30 p.m., but police did not say where he was found.

The man was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and violations for speeding and leaving the scene of an accident, Abbate said.
