BATAVIA, N.Y. -- Police say a drunk driver hit several signs and a light pole before going airborne and crashing into a home, severing a gas meter.

It happened at the three-way intersection of Pearl, South Main, and Oak Streets just before 5:30 Saturday morning.

Corey Goff, 22, of Rochester, is charged with D.W.I., refusing to take a breath test, driving at a speed not reasonable and prudent, traveling at an unreasonable speed, reckless driving, and two counts of failure to keep right.

Police say Goff was traveling eastbound on Pearl Street at a high rate of speed and failed to negotiate the roundabout.  He then crashed into the home at 26 South Main Street.  No one was home at the time.

Neighbors were evacuated for about 45 minutes while National Fuel crews shut off gas to the home.  The gas meter was destroyed, but the home was deemed structurally sound.
