A two-month investigation into a serious accident on Route 30 in Perth culminated with the recent arrest of a Broadalbin man.

John W. Firstiun, III, 35, of Broadalbin, faces one count of felony second-degree vehicle assault, two counts of misdemeanor driving while intoxicated, and several violations of the Vehicle and Traffic Law after test results revealed that his blood-alcohol content was almost twice the legal limit at the time of the accident on Feb. 28, state police said.

According to authorities, Firstiun crossed the median and collided with a motorist traveling in the opposite direction. Both drivers suffered serious injuries.

Firstiun is scheduled to be arraigned in the town of Perth Court on Monday.
