NY man with anti-DWI device in car crashes rental

NEW YORK (AP) - Police on Long Island say a convicted drunken
driver whose car was equipped with anti-drunken driving technology
has crashed a rented vehicle while intoxicated.
Suffolk County police say Marvin Rice Jr. lost control of his
rental car and hit a utility pole Sunday morning in Brentwood.
Stony Brook University Medical Center says Rice is in critical
condition.
Police say the 27-year-old driver agreed after a previous DWI
conviction to equip his car with a device that tests for alcohol in
a driver's breath before starting the car.
It was unclear when he rented another car that had no such
device.
He's expected to be arraigned on a DWI charge.
A telephone number for Rice couldn't be found, and it wasn't
immediately known whether he had a lawyer.
