Police say a Long Island man whose car was outfitted with an anti-drunken-driving device rented another car and crashed it while intoxicated.
Police say 27-year-old Marvin Rice, Junior, of Shirley, lost control of a rental car in Brentwood Sunday morning and struck a utility pole.
Stony Brook University Medical Center says Rice is in critical condition.
Suffolk County police say the driver agreed after a previous DWI conviction to have his car equipped with an ignition interlock device. The “blow and go” technology tests for alcohol in a driver’s breath before letting the car start.
It’s unclear when he acquired the rental car, which had no such device.
Police say Rice will be arraigned on a DWI charge April 13 at First District Court in Central Islip.
No telephone number could be found for the drive
