A Sauquoit woman is charged with DWI after crashing a pickup truck. New Hartford police responded to a report of a car crash on Mallory Rd. near the Herkimer County line just after 1 am Thursday morning.

When they arrived, they found a pickup truck with heavy damage to the driver side area after it crashed into a telephone pole. No occupants were found in or around the truck.

After checking the area, police located the driver, 32-year-old Jennifer Lake, at her home on Graffenburg Rd. She had minor injuries to her face and eye from the crash.

After an investigation, she was taken to the hospital for treatment, and was charged with DWI and Failure to Keep Right. She will answer to the charges next month in New Hartford town court.
