UTICA N.Y. - Utica Police have charged the driver they say caused a head-on crash on North Genesee Street for a few hours Friday evening.

It happened just after 6:00 pm in front of Tavolo.

The Utica Police and Fire Departments responded to the scene.

Two cars were involved, three people were injured.

Police say both cars were towed from the scene.

Police say Kyle Hart, age 35 of Dolgeville NY, was traveling northbound when he crossed over the divided median and struck another vehicle which was traveling southbound.

Police say Hart’s vehicle collided head on with the other vehicle, causing both to obstruct the southbound lanes of traffic.

Police say it was immediately determined that Hart was likely under the influence of a substance, and was not conscious and life saving measures were taken by passing civilians and the Utica Fire Department to revive Hart.

Hart was immediately transported to St. Elizabeth Medical Center for treatment, where he is currently in stable condition.

Police say a passenger in Hart's vehicle and the operator of the other vehicle were also transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Hart is charged with DWI Drugs, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation, and several other NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law violations.
