WIMINGTON, Mass. — A 60-year-old Fayette man faces an operating under the influence charge after a two-car crash on I-93 Tuesday, according to a report in the Boston Globe.

According to the report the Massachussets State Police said the crash occurred shortly before 6 a.m. north of the Route 62 exit in Wilmington.

Police said Richard Hall, of Fayette, Maine,  was driving a 1989 Chevrolet K-10 pickup truck north on I-93 when he allegedly swerved into the path of a 2000 Honda Civic being driven by Howard Kaufman of Melrose, Mass.

 Kaufman, 56, swerved off the road and into the median of the highway, according to police. He was rushed to Winchester Hospital and his condition was not immediately available.

According to the report Hall continued driving, losing control of the truck and sliding into the median where he hit a tree as the truck rolled.

The highway was closed for about 20 minutes allowing a medical helicopter to get Hall and fly him to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston where his condition was not immediately available.

  Trooper Bryan Erickson, cited Hall for drunk driving, having an open container of alcohol, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, and marked lanes violation, according to police. Hall is expected to be summonsed into court at a later date, police said.
