Wesley Morrow, 34, of Spring Hill Road, charged with drunken driving early Saturday after a one-car accident at the intersection of Wilton Road and Twin Falls Lane.
Police said Morrow's vehicle went off the roadway and came to rest on top of a stone wall between two trees.
After the accident, an officer smelled a "strong odor" of alcohol on Morrow's breath and noticed that his eyes were glassy and his speech was slurred, according to the report. He also failed a field sobriety test, police said.
Morrow was charged with operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failure to drive in the proper lane, insurance coverage that failed to meet minimum requirements and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.
He was released on $500 bond and is scheduled to appear July 31 in Norwalk Superior Court.
