POUND RIDGE, N.Y. -- New York State Police from the Somers barracks have arrested a 65-year-old man from Stamford, Conn. on a driving while intoxicated charge.

Troopers were dispatched to a one-car auto collision that occurred on High Ridge Road on Sunday, March 6, police report.

Subsequent investigation revealed that the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, identified as James E. Manning Jr., was traveling northbound on High Ridge Road before exiting the roadway and striking a guide rail, according to officials.
