COBLESKILL – A drunk driver three times the legal limit crashed into a house Sunday in Cobleskill, state police said.

No injuries were reported, but a resident inside the home was evaluated at the scene by EMS, state police said.

State police identified the driver as Stephanie Twedt, 48, of Howe’s Cave.

Her blood alcohol content tested at 0.25 percent, state police said. The legal limit to drive is 0.08.

Twedt was charged with one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. 

The incident happened just after 5 p.m. on Barnerville Road in the Town of Cobleskill, state police said. 

Twedt was headed west on Barnerville when she lost control, left the roadway and hit the house, state police said.

The resident evaluated was the only person home at the time, troopers said.

Twedt was released to appear in court later.
