ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --   A Congers man was driving drunk at more than twice the legal limit when he hit a utility pole on Friday, according to the Orangetown Police Department.

Daniel Vondervor, 26, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated after police found him standing beside his car on Midland Avenue following the crash, police said.

When officers approached Vondervor they reported smelling alcohol on his breath and that he had glassy eyes and slurred speech, police said.

Vondervor consented to and failed a series of field sobriety tests on the scene. He also consented to a breathalyzer test where his blood alcohol limit tested at more than twice the legal limit, police said.

He was released on bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 7.
