    SHREWSBURY, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A Worcester man was arraigned Monday on drunk driving charges for a crash that has left a Lunenburg woman in critical condition.

    The crash happened at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning at the Route 290 west onramp at Exit 23A in Shrewsbury.

    Police say 50-year-old Charles Bohigian was drunk and under the influence of alcohol when he struck 38-year-old Katrina McCarty.

    McCarty had just gotten into a single car accident, and was walking along the onramp when she was hit.

    McCarty suffered life-threatening injuries and was rushed to the hospital, where she was in critical condition as of Monday morning.

    Bohigian was arraigned in Westoborough District Court Monday, facing a series of charges including driving under the influence of liquor, speeding, and leaving the scene of an accident.

    This incident is Bohigian's second OUI arrest.
