Buffalo woman charged with Leandra’s Law violation in Orchard Park

A 21-year-old Buffalo woman had an 18-month-old girl in her car when she was charged with drunken driving in Orchard Park on Monday.

An officer responded to New Taylor Road at about 5:20 p.m. for the report of a woman going in and out of consciousness behind the wheel of a vehicle, Orchard Park police said.

Police charged Calla Majewicz with driving while intoxicated, a felony violation of Leandra’s Law, endangering the welfare of a child and having an open beverage in a motor vehicle.

She was transported to a local hospital and submitted to a blood test, Orchard Park police said. The 18-month-old was uninjured and turned over to a family member. Child Protective Services will continue to investigate.

Majewicz is scheduled to appear in Orchard Park Village Court on Thursday.
