ROCHESTER — A Maine man was arrested Thursday morning after police accused him of causing a three-vehicle crash while driving under the influence.

Parlin then drove into a Toyota Corolla driven by David Murphy of Springvale, Maine, according to police.

Emergency crews were called to Highland Street near Eastern Avenue at 6:33 a.m. Nobody involved was taken to the hospital, police said.

In addition to a misdemeanor DWI charge, Parlin was cited for reckless driving, following too closely and highway markings, according to a news release.
