No injuries were reported.

Mark E. Rockafellow, of Landisville, Pa., was charged with one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated.

The incident happened Saturday morning on Interstate 88 in Richmondville. Troopers were called to the scene for a one-car crash on I-88 eastbound. 

They arrived and found the car and determined it had struck the exit sign, as well as a barrel and another traffic device called a delineator, state police said.

The trooper spoke with Rockafellow, smelled alcohol on his breath and observed signs of intoxication, state police said. He then failed roadside sobriety tests and was arrested.

Taken back to the state police barracks, a Rockafellow breath sample came back with a 0.25 percent blood alcohol content, above the legal limit of 0.08.

Rockafellow was arraigned and released to return to court later.
