A Hamburg man charged with driving impaired by drugs is accused of causing mayhem on Southwestern Boulevard near Milestrip Road in the Town of Orchard Park about 8 a.m. Monday.
Justin Duffy, 23, was driving east on Southwestern when he crashed into the rear of a large utility trailer being towed by a dump truck, pushing the dump truck into a car in front of it as both were stopped for a traffic signal at the Milestrip intersection. As Duffy was being questioned, police said, another driver arrived at the scene and reported the vehicle driven by Duffy had sideswiped him about a half-mile away on Southwestern.
Duffy was charged with driving while impaired by drugs and reckless operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident.
He faces court proceedings in Orchard Park Town Court.
