ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Suffern man was charged with DWI after being stopped by Ramapo police on Monday may also be involved in a hit-and-run crash in Airmont.

Upon initial contact with the driver, the officer noticed an odor of an alcoholic beverage on Sunuc-Diaz's breath, impaired coordination, and impaired speech, police said.
