An upper Hudson Valley corrections officer is accused of crashing his car while driving drunk with two children.

On Monday around 9 p.m., New York State Police responded to a single vehicle property damage accident in the area of Route 81 and School House Road in the town of Durham.

Upon arrival, the trooper observed a vehicle off the road. The driver, Brad C. Ingraham, 40, of Greenville, was with two minors, police say.

The car left the road and hit a guardrail before slamming into a tree. Ingraham suffered a cut to his head and was treated at the scene, the two children weren't injured.

Police allege, Ingraham, an off-duty correctional officer crashed his car while driving drunk. He later provided a breath sample resulting in a .27 percent Blood Alcohol Content, according to State Police.

According to WYNT, Ingraham told police he blacked out and doesn't remember driving off the road. WRGB reports the correctional officer has been suspended without pay.

Ingraham was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated under Leandra's Law, a felony. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court in May.
