Newfield (WSYR-TV) – State Police say an Ithaca man was driving drunk with a young child in the car when he crashed on State Route 13 in the Tompkins County town of Newfield.

Police also say he had a small amount of marijuana in the car during the crash, which occurred on Friday.

They charged Kevin Smith, 35, with DWI, endangering the welfare of a child, and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Because a child was in the car, the charges are amplified under the Leandra’s Law statute.

The child is 8 years old.

Smith was arraigned in Town of Newfield Court and released on his own recognizance.

He was scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 12.
