Village police charge Massena man with DWI, leaving scene after Route 37 crash


MASSENA — A Massena man is accused of driving while intoxicated, driving without a license and leaving the scene of an accident, among other charges, after a two-vehicle collision Saturday on Route 37.

Village police arrested Nathan J. Justin, 25, of 298 Barnhart Road, at 10:26 p.m. on Barnhart Road, charging him with DWI, passing a red light, having a passenger without a seat belt, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, speed not reasonable and operating without a license.

Police said Mr. Justin, driving a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire registered to Lindsay Brainard, same address, was driving south on Bayley Road at 7:55 p.m. when he failed to stop at a red light and collided with a Ford 150 pickup truck driven by Edward T. Mashaw, 52, of 114 Oak St., Ogdensburg. The collision drove the truck into the curb and a road sign.

Two passengers in the Mashaw vehicle — Darlene M. Mashaw, 52, and Alan Redmond, 44 — were taken to Massena Memorial Hospital.

Police said Mr. Justin had a blood alcohol content of 0.12 percent. Under state law, a BAC of 0.08 percent or more constitutes driving while intoxicated.
