DRIVER IN FATAL CRASH CHARGED WITH DWI

An 18-year-old North Tonawanda man was killed early Wednesday morning when the car he was riding in crashed into a pole and burst into flames on Main Street in Williamsville, Amherst police said.

Timothy Schumacher of 503 Euclid Ave. was pronounced dead at the scene after the crash at 1:26 a.m., Lt. R. Richard Langenfeld said.

The driver, Christopher Fink, 16, of 26 Geneva St., North Tonawanda, was listed in stable condition Wednesday in Erie County Medical Center.

Officers charged Fink with driving while intoxicated, driving without a license and failure to keep right.

Langenfeld said the car, westbound on Main at Hirschfield Drive, crossed the center line and smashed into a signal pole before bursting into flames.
