Man with anti-DWI device crashes car

Police on Long Island say a convicted drunken driver whose car was equipped with anti-drunken driving technology has crashed a rented vehicle while intoxicated.

Suffolk County police say Marvin Rice Jr. lost control of his rental car and hit a utility pole Sunday morning in Brentwood.

Police say the 27-year-old driver agreed after a previous DWI conviction to have his car equipped with a device that tests for alcohol in a driver's breath before starting the car.

It was unclear when he rented another car that had no such device.

Police say Rice is being treated for multiple injuries. He is expected to be arraigned on a DWI charge.

A telephone number for Rice could not be found, and it was not immediately known whether he had a lawyer.
