SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A woman is facing DWI charges after police say she lost control of her car and plowed through a fence in Schenectady’s Veterans Park early Thursday morning.
Police say Ray was driving down State Street in an unregistered car without a license while speeding and using a cell phone, when she lost control of her car and crossed into the oncoming lane.
Ray drove up and over the sidewalk, taking out a tree, and continued driving into a cement barrier, moving it out of place and knocking down the steel park fencing behind it.
Police say Ray suffered only minor injuries.
The crash left quite a mess, and it will be up to Schenectady to decide whether Ray will be on the hook for the cost of repairs.
