Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A New Jersey man has been accused of driving while intoxicated following a wrong-way crash on Interstate 81 in Cortland County.

Authorities say 71-year-old George Sharp of Gillette, New Jersey, was driving north in the southbound lanes of the highway in Cortlandville.

According to New York State Police, the crash occurred between exits 10 and 11.

Troopers say their investigation determined Sharp was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

Police say Sharp was taken to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City, where he consented to a blood test. The results were not available.

Sharp was arraigned in Cortlandville town court and released on his own recognizance.
