MILFORD – A Fort Plain man is facing several charges, including DWI, after his car crashed into a house in Milford over the weekend, according to the Otsego Count Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say 63-year-old Ray Agard was driving northbound on State Route 28 on Sunday when he lost control of his vehicle, left the right shoulder of the roadway and then struck a snow embankment. After his vehicle struck the embankment, it continued off the roadway and struck a house at 124 N. Main. St. in the town of Milford, causing substantial damage.

According to AllOtsego.com, the couple that lives at the home, Tammy and Barry Jones, woke up Sunday to Agard’s car in their kitchen. Tammy Jones says Agard initially tried to back out of the kitchen, then asked them for help, and then asked if he could use their bathroom.

No injuries were sustained during the crash. The Milford Fire Department assisted the Sheriff’s Office at the scene.
Agard is charged with DWI (first offense), operating a motor vehicle with a BAC level of .08 percent or more, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, driving on shoulders and slopes, and speed not reasonable and prudent.

Agard was issued an appearance ticket for the Town of Milford Court at 6 p.m. Feb. 6.
