NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a motorist who plowed into a security barrier outside the World Trade Center has been arrested on drunken driving charges.
A Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police spokesman says the barrier wasn't damaged in the crash. It happened around 1:30 p.m. Friday at the high-security site in lower Manhattan.
Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo (pehn-TAN'-jeh-loh) says driver Paul Cederdahl of Red Bank, New Jersey, was swaying and speaking incoherently after crashing his Volvo, and officers found an open bottle of vodka on the passenger-side floor.
No one was injured.
The 47-year-old Cederdahl was due in court Saturday. The voice mailbox for a number listed to him isn't accepting messages, and it's unclear whether he has a lawyer who can comment on the charges.
