LIVINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) — State police in New York say an Albany man was high on drugs when he called 911 to report that his vehicle had been sideswiped on a highway. Troopers say the other driver was drunk.

Police say 38-year-old Malcolm Sidbury was driving south on the Taconic Parkway in Columbia County on Wednesday when he told dispatchers his car had been hit by another vehicle that didn't stop.

Troopers spotted the vehicles and stopped both. They determined Sidbury was driving while impaired by drugs and that the other driver, 57-year-old Thomas Robbins, of Poughkeepsie, was driving while intoxicated. Police say Robbins' blood-alcohol content was .25 percent, more than three times the legal limit.

Both men were issued tickets. The district attorney's office said it doesn't have attorney information for either man.
