Binghamton man charged after car hits trees, injuring woman
A man charged with drunk driving is facing felony charges after he allegedly obstructed efforts to free a woman from a vehicle following an accident in the town of Binghamton.
Authorities say Terrell Wilson, 36, of Belden Street, Binghamton, was able to get out of the car after it ran off a roadway and hit some trees.
According to the Broome County Sheriff’s Office, the crash happened around 1:30 a.m. Friday on Hawleyton Road near the intersection of Park Avenue.
Investigators say a 39-year-old woman who was a passenger in the car was injured and trapped in the vehicle.
Wilson allegedly interfered with rescuers trying to extract the woman from the crashed car. He was restrained by sheriff’s deputies.
Firefighters released the woman who was taken to Binghamton General Hospital for treatment of an arm injury.
Authorities said Wilson was arrested after showing signs of alcohol intoxication and refusing to perform field sobriety tests.
Wilson was taken to the sheriff’s office headquarters in the town of Dickinson where he submitted to a breath test. Investigators said his blood alcohol level was measured at 0.11%.
According to the sheriff’s office, Wilson’s driver’s license had been revoked due to a previous DWI conviction. A court had also issued him with an ignition interlock restriction, but no device was fitted to the vehicle involved in the crash.
Wilson faces multiple charges, including driving while intoxicated with a prior conviction within ten years and aggravated unlicensed operation.
Wilson was transported to his home and released.
