QUEENSBURY -- A 57-year-old Glens Falls man was charged with felony driving while intoxicated Friday night following a rear-end crash on Route 9, police said.

Carter R. Morrill was arrested after a Warren County sheriff's patrol spotted the collision at the intersection of Route 9 and Gurney Lane shortly before 6 p.m. A 2003 Hyundai that Morrill was driving hit a Nissan Pathfinder from behind, police said.

No one was hurt, and police had not been called. Sheriff's patrol officers Scott Rawson and Greg Dunn stopped to check on the vehicle occupants, and determined Morrill had been drinking, police said.

They also determined Morrill's driver's license had been suspended because of prior alcohol-related convictions, and he was charged with felony DWI and misdemeanor aggravated unlicensed operation, police said.

Morrill was also charged with violation-level counts of unlawful possession of marijuana, refusal to take a breath test, following too closely and having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle.

Morrill was arraigned and sent to Warren County Jail without bail.
