Buffalo driver had BAC more than five times legal limit, police say

A 41-year-old Buffalo man who had one of the highest blood-alcohol levels ever recorded locally caused a two-car crash Wednesday night on Broadway, police said.

Ivan K. Dixon of Loepere Street registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.44 percent, more than five times the state’s legal limit, according to police.

In addition, Dixon’s driver’s license has been suspended since 1997, police added.

Dixon’s vehicle struck a car in front of him on Broadway at Smith Street at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said, but no injuries were reported. Both Dixon’s car and the other vehicle were extensively damaged.

Dixon was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated.

He remained in custody at the Erie County Holding Center Thursday pending further court proceedings.
