A caller reported to Tarrytown Police at 5:55 p.m. that he was involved in a car accident had pain in his legs. Tarrytown Volunteer Ambulance Corps was dispatched, however the man refused medical attention upon their arrival.

It was the operator of car two who complained of leg pains but refused medical attention, said Herguth. While Michael McGee, operator of car one, was charged with driving while intoxicated.

McGee, 46, of Wildey Street, Tarrytown refused to submit to the breathalyzer test at headquarters, Herguth said.
