On December 6, 2013 at approximately 10:50 p.m., State Police responded to the intersection of Plank Road and Republic Street in Mineville, town of Moriah, for a report of a personal injury motor vehicle accident.
The operator, Jason A. Cole, 25 years old of Mineville, had been driving a red Chevrolet Aveo south on Plank Road and lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle exited the roadway off the west shoulder and struck a utility pole. The vehicle overturned, slid across both lanes of Republic Street, and came to rest right-side-up in a yard on the west side of Plank Road.
Cole was transported to Moses Ludington Hospital by ambulance for leg pain.
Upon his release from the hospital, Cole was arrested for driving while intoxicated. His blood alcohol content was determined to be .11%.
Troopers were notified by the owner of the vehicle that Cole also did not have permission to operate it. Cole was ultimately charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle. He was also ticketed for unlicensed operator, speed not reasonable, no seatbelt and failure to use designated lane.
