WAVERLY -- State police say a Brasher Falls man was charged with driving while intoxicated on Friday after a motorcycle crash.

Around 7:12 p.m. that day, troopers say they responded to a report of a motorcycle crash on South River Road in the town of Waverly.

A 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by Andrew S. Phelix, 35 of Brasher Falls, was traveling westbound on South River Road, when he drove off the north shoulder of the roadway and struck a tree.
