BRYAN, Texas -- Former Houston Oilers quarterback Dan Pastorini has been charged with driving while intoxicated following a traffic accident in Bryan, Texas.

Officer Jason James says Pastorini was involved in a three-vehicle collision late Sunday. He was arrested Monday after being treated for minor injuries, then freed after posting $3,000 bail.

James says the 60-year-old Pastorini, who lives in Houston, about 90 miles southeast of Bryan, also was cited for failure to control speed. Blood test results are pending.

James says Pastorini was alone when his car rear-ended a pickup, which then clipped another vehicle.

Electronic jail records did not list an attorney for Pastorini, who was with the Oilers in the 1970s, then played for the Los Angeles Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles.
