Police say a 52-year-old Horseheads resident was arrested after first responders were called to a multi-vehicle crash in the village.

Janice Rumsmoke, 52, was charged with felony DWI, felony driving with a BAC over 0.08%, failure to keep right, speed not reasonable, and consumption of alcohol in a vehicle.


It all happened Sunday evening, around 9:52 p.m., when police were called to a portion of North Avenue in the village.
