The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says a Madison County man has been charged with DWI after crashing his vehicle while trying to run from a deputy.
A sheriff’s deputy was on routine patrol Thursday morning along the 3700 block of James Street.
The deputy observed a red Chevy trailblazer operating erratically as the driver turned onto East Milford Street.
As the deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the Trailblazer, the deputy says the driver sped up the vehicle in excess of the 30 miles per hour and refused to pull over for several blocks before crashing into a small tree and a parked car on Northcliffe Road.
The driver took off on foot as the Trailblazer slowly continued onto Nichols Avenue where it came to rest on the sidewalk.
Additional deputies arrived in the area and began searching for the driver who was quickly located and taken into custody after a brief foot chase.
The driver, who was the only occupant of the Trailblazer, was identified as 25-year-old Corey Carbery of Chittenango.
Carbery was charged with felony driving while intoxicated, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, reckless driving, third-degree unlawful fleeing a police officer and was issued several traffic tickets.
Carbery, who is currently on parole, was arraigned in Syracuse City Court and is being held in the Onondaga County Justice Center without bail.
