Driver to face OUI charges in accident

GREENFIELD — A local man landed in the hospital and is facing drunken driving charges after a mid-evening accident on Shelburne Road this weekend.

A resident called police at 7:57 p.m. Sunday to report a car had struck a tree, according to the Greenfield Police log. The caller then called a second time to report the driver was at her door, covered in blood, highly intoxicated and pounding on the door.

Patrick J. Rosewarne, 31, of 221 Colrain Road, was taken to the hospital and summoned to court on charges of drunken driving, negligent driving and failure to observe marked lanes.

By Tuesday, Rosewarne had been treated and released from Baystate Franklin Medical Center.
