A New York State Police investigator faces charges following an accident Friday in Corning.
State troopers responded around 9:18 a.m. Friday to a report of a two-vehicle personal injury accident in the eastbound lane of Interstate 86 in the town of Corning.

The operator of the vehicle attempting to pass was Randy Hugg, 53, a senior state police investigator, troopers said.
Hugg was off duty at the time of the crash, state police said.
He was charged with driving while intoxicated, and was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries.
