Two motorists were charged with driving while intoxicated after their cars collided at 12:25 a.m. Saturday at Eastern Boulevard and Water Street, according to the Jefferson County Sheriffs Department.
William D. Vaughn, 24, Fort Drum, and Andrew C. Hernandez, 27, Watertown, both suffered minor cuts and were treated at Samaritan Medical Center.
Deputies said Mr. Hernandez was driving west on Route 3, or Eastern Boulevard, when the passenger side of his car was struck by the Vaughn auto, which had not stopped for a stop sign. The Hernandez auto then overturned.
Their blood alcohol content was to be determined from blood samplings drawn at the hospital.
Also charged with DWI are:
■ Melissa M. Redford, 37, of 31770 Route 3, Carthage, was arrested by city police at 2:30 a.m. Sunday on charges of aggravated DWI, operating an uninspected auto and having inadequate brake lights in the 200 block of South Massey Street. Police said she had a breath test reading of 0.20 percent blood alcohol content. State law sets 0.18 percent as the threshold for aggravated DWI, and 0.08 percent is the standard for intoxication.
Mrs. Redford had a DWI arrest in August 2011 in the town of Rutland. Information about the status of that case was not available.
■ James T. Burkhalter, 33, of 169 Howe St., Black River, was charged by city police in the 100 block of Factory Street at 12:45 a.m. with DWI, a red light infraction, failure to signal a turn and failure to keep right. He tested at 0.12 percent, police said.
