HOMER — A Truxton man was taken to the city hospital before dawn Saturday after he crashed his car against a utility pole while driving drunk on Route 13, according to police.
Everett C. Mcintosh, 35, of 5975 Dog Hollow Road, was driving north about 3:50 a.m. on Route 13 when he lost control of his 2006 Toyota Corolla, according to the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office. The car struck a utility pole near Forbes Road, then continued on to strike an earth embankment, overturning and landing on its roof, said Lt. Karl Altmann in a news release.
TLC Emergency Medical Services took Mcintosh by ambulance to Guthrie Cortland Medical Center to be evaluated for potential head and internal injuries, Altmann stated.
Officers determined Mcintosh was intoxicated at the time of the crash, he said.
Mcintosh’s condition was not immediately available this morning.
The Sheriff’s Office charged Mcintosh with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, as well as refusal to take a breath test and driving across hazard markings, violations. Mcintosh is scheduled to appear at 4 p.m. June 9 in Homer Town Court.
