    State police say a Westchester County man was drunk when he was clocked driving more than 150 mph before crashing on an upstate New York road.

    Authorities say troopers patrolling in Madison County were passed by a 2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4 traveling at a high speed early Sunday morning.

    Police say the troopers' radar gun measured the car doing 153 mph.

    The troopers turned on their emergency lights, but the driver failed to stop. The car eventually hit a guide rail at an intersection in Oneida, 25 miles east of Syracuse.

    Police say 20-year-old Shane Crolick of Bedford Corners was charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless endangerment and traffic violations.

    Crolick and three passengers weren't injured. He was released on $5,000 bail.

    There is no phone listing available for Crolick.
