A 22-year-old man has been accused of drunken driving after Southampton Town Police said he crashed into a utility pole on Wednesday evening.
Daniel Halstead of Calverton was driving on Flanders Road in Flanders when he hit the pole near Glider Avenue, downing power lines at 10:31 p.m., police said.
Officers found Halstead to be under the influence of alcohol, police said. He was not injured in the crash.
Halstead was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. He will be arraigned Thursday at Southampton Town Justice Court.
Flanders Road was closed for several hours overnight while Long Island Power Authority workers repaired the damage.
