MASSENA - A Massena man was charged with driving while intoxicated after his truck reportedly suffered an equipment malfunction, veered out of control and slammed into a telephone pole at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday on South Main Street near East Hatfield Street. Village police said Ronald D. Gravel, 67, of 49 1/2 Maple St., Massena, was northbound on South Main Street when he struck the utility pole in front of the former Springs Inn. A witness told police she heard a popping noise and then saw the truck slam into the utility pole. Mr. Gravel told police the equipment malfunction made it impossible for him to control his truck. He was taken to Massena Memorial Hospital by Massena Rescue for treatment of hip pain and released. Police said blood was drawn at the hospital, and Mr. Gravel’s blood alcohol content won’t be available until laboratory results are turned over to the village police department.
