The man who crashed his tractor-trailer near Route 219 in the Town of Ashford late Monday night has been charged with felony driving while intoxicated.

Sheriff’s deputies say 44-year-old Karl Baker of North Collins did not stop at the stop sign at the intersection of Peters Road and Route 219, then crashed into a field.

Deputies say Baker was intoxicated when they arrived. He was treated for injuries at Bertrand-Chafee Hospital, then charged with DWI and several traffic violations. He’s due back in Town of Ashford Court this evening.
