HARRISON, N.Y. A Harrison resident was charged with driving while ability impaired after hitting a car July 31, Harrison police said.
Adam Steinberg, 27, of 75 First St., hit a Kia at 74 First St. around 4:45 p.m., police said. A witness told police Steinberg then drove down First Street and turned on Fremont Street with the Kia owner driving behind him.
When police spoke to Steinberg, he appeared to be lethargic and had a white foamy build up on his mouth along with pale skin and glassy eyes. He was staggering and unable to maintain eye contact. There was no odor of alcohol from his breath, police said.
Police found a prescription bottle for alprazolam, an anti-anxiety drug, that had been filled on July 30 for 60 tabs. When police collected the bottle, it contained 21 tabs and Steinberg told them he had taken four that day.
Before being transported to White Plains Hospital due to his altered mental state, Steinberg underwent various tests for the police and submitted a urine sample for chemical testing. His car was towed from the scene and later picked up.
He was given a court date in Harrison Town Court.
