CLAY, N.Y. — State troopers on Saturday charged a 25-year-old Oswego County man with felony DWI following a one-car crash around midnight in the town of Clay.

James M. Darling, 25, of Maple View was driving a Ford F150 pickup truck northbound on Morgan Road when he lost control, slid off the roadway and struck a utility pole, state police said. He was not injured, police said.

Darling was speeding, drinking alcohol and using a cell phone before the accident occurred, police said. He was charged with felony DWI because he had a previous conviction within 10 years, police said.

Darling also was ticketed for speeding, operating a motor vehicle while using a mobile phone, and drinking alcohol while operating a motor vehicle on a highway, all violations.
