SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a 30-year-old Saratoga County man charged with driving while intoxicated after a crash last winter has now been arrested for injuring a woman in a hit-and-run accident just before the crash.

Saratoga Springs police say Paul Natale of Gansevoort was charged with DWI after crashing his car into a tree around 5 a.m. Jan. 31.
 
Police say about a half hour later, officers were called to Saratoga Hospital for a report of a woman who was seriously injured after being hit by a car in a parking garage. Officers say the woman had left a Saratoga bar with friends and was standing next to her car when Natale backed up his car, hitting the woman and running over her.
 
A message left at Natale's home wasn't returned.
