ALBANY — A 21-year-old Colonie man will spend the next three to nine years in state prison for driving the wrong way on I-90, crashing into an oncoming car and causing serious injuries to the driver.
Judge Peter Lynch sentenced Andrew Febbie on Wednesday, Sept. 26, and also imposed a one-year driver’s license revocation and the installation of an ignition interlock device for three years.
According to District Attorney David Soares, on July 31 Febbie pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular assault, a felony, and the misdemeanor of aggravated DWI.
On March 17, at around 5:13 p.m., Febbie entered the Everett Road exit on I-90 in Albany going the wrong way.
He struck another vehicle causing multiple fractured bones and internal injuries to the driver.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found Febbie unconscious and a number of open containers of alcohol in his vehicle.
According to a blood sample, he had a BAC of .25 percent, more than three times the legal limit.
At the time of the crash, Febbie was driving on a conditional license stemming from a previous driving related offense.
Vehicular Crimes Bureau Chief Mary Tanner-Richter and Assistant District Attorney David Szalda prosecuted.
