UTICA, N.Y. (AP) - A postal worker faces drunken driving charges after her mail truck hit another mail truck in a post office parking lot.

Police in Utica tell local media outlets that 42-year-old Samantha Reile of Frankfort was arrested on the job Saturday evening after co-workers called police.

A co-worker told officers Reile’s postal vehicle had hit another vehicle, and she was falling down and smelled of alcohol.

Utica police say Reile’s blood alcohol level was .25 percent, more than three times the normal legal limit of .08. The limit for a driver of a commercial vehicle is .04 percent.

Reile was charged with two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated.
