MAN'S BEATING OF WIFE CAUSED CRASH, POLICE SAY

When Amherst police responded to a motor vehicle accident on Casey Road early Sunday morning, they encountered an unusual sight -- both occupants unconscious in the back seat.

After they had unraveled the bizarre situation, police arrested the driver and accused him of jumping into the back seat to continue assaulting his wife -- apparently while the car was moving.

Officers John Fiore and James Caputi charged Tiber L. Csapo Jr., 39, of Ayer Road, with driving while intoxicated, second-degree assault and felony reckless endangerment.

Csapo was accused of punching his wife while they drove back from an Amherst restaurant early Sunday morning. His wife told police that he pulled over, punched her in the face, continued driving and continued beating her. After she jumped into the back seat, he followed her there. The vehicle crashed into heavy brush about 10 to 15 feet off the road.

Both Csapo and his wife were treated in Erie County Medical Center and released. He was released into police custody, pending his arraignment.
