RIVERSIDE, N.Y. (AP) - State police say an off-duty trooper has been charged with driving while intoxicated after an accident in Steuben County.

Troopers say 27-year-old Alex Krawczyk (CRAW’-chick) of Painted Post lost control of his vehicle in the town of Riverside around 2 a.m. Thursday. The car hit two trees and overturned.

Police say Krawczyk and his passenger, 26-year-old Shaun Fallon of Painted Post, were airlifted to a Pennsylvania hospital with injuries that aren’t life-threatening.

Krawczyk has been a trooper for less than two years and is assigned to the Painted Post barracks. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.
