— State Police say Dennis Drue, 22, of Clifton Park, rear-ended Stewart’s car and sent both vehicles off the roadway about one mile north of the Twin Bridges on Saturday, Dec. 1. The students were returning home from the Siena College, UAlbany basketball game at the Times Union Center.

Police said Drue tested positive for alcohol in a Breathalyzer test but his exact BAC will be determined from analysis blood drawn at Ellis Hospital, where he received treatment. The testing process is being expedited, according to police.

Police say Drue is likely to face charges, and the severity of the legal action is likely to hinge on his BAC.
