An East Boston man faces drunken driving charges after his pickup truck crashed through a light pole, an exit sign, and a chain-link fence, and then launched off the upper deck of Interstate 93 in Boston Sunday morning, officials said. Vannak Sao, 33, was driving a 2006 Toyota Tacoma northbound on I-93 when he hit a barrier that divides the main highway from the ramp to Route 1, State Police said. Firefighters rescued Sao and took him to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was stabilized.
