On Wednesday at 5:55 pm police arrested a Seneca Falls man for aggravated driving while intoxicated, and for a number of other reasons after a personal injury motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Gravel Rd. and State Route 318.

Police in Seneca Falls say that Adam P. Krux, 38, of Seneca Falls was charged with aggravated DWI, DWI, failure to yield the right of way, failure to stop at a stop sign, and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
