Vernon police have charged a 30-year-old tow truck driver accused of drunken driving with a child in his truck as he was responding to a call from police.

Raymond Raiche, of Ellington, was responding to a crash scene to tow a vehicle at the request of Vernon Police when he ran a stop sign and crashed his flatbed wrecker into a guard rail, police said.

Raiche’s 13-year-old stepson was in the vehicle at the time of the crash, police said.

Raiche was charged with driving under the influence, risk of injury and failing to stop at a stop sign.

No one was hurt during the crash and another wrecker service responded to the original call.

Raiche was released on a $1,500 non-surety bond and is due in court on Dec. 11.
