UPDATE Jan. 28: Antonio Sousa, 48, is due in Croton-on-Hudson Village Court Jan. 30 to answer a charge of driving while intoxicated related to an accident that seriously injured his passenger on Jan. 19.
Sousa, a resident of Todd Place in Ossining, turned himself in after being released from Westchester Medical Center. He was arraigned before Judge Sam Watkins Jr.
Passenger Jonathan D. Homem, 26, of Croton-on-Hudson, has undergone surgery on his legs and may need more, police said.
Police said Sousa called in the accident from the scene at 6:06 a.m. and said he did not know where he was. Croton and Ossining police began searching—an Ossining officer found the car off the road as he exited Route 9 at Croton Point Avenue to turn back southward.
The car had impaled itself on a section of guard rail, which pinned Homem.
The Westchester County Police accident investigation team was called to the scene.
UPDATE Jan. 21: A car traveling northbound on Route 9 hit the guard rail at the Croton Point exit Saturday morning, injuring both the driver and passenger, police said.
The car rolled over and was impaled on a piece of the guard rail.
The single-vehicle accident at 6:06 a.m. was reported by the driver, who told police the passenger may have been seriously injured. The car was a 2003 Mercedes-Benz.
Police said one victim was an Ossining resident, the other a Croton-on-Hudson resident. They would not release further details, saying the matter was still under investigation.
Both are still at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, police said.
