The driver of a Cadillac DeVille hit a pickup truck parked on Seneca Street at Mount Vernon Street before leaving the scene and rear-ending a Mazda at a traffic light at Seneca and Warren Spahn Way on Saturday, Buffalo police reported.
Police said they found Peter Karyczak, 48, of Red Jacket Parkway, behind the wheel of his car. Police said he was driving with a revoked license, his vehicle did not have an interlocking device to prevent him from driving while drunk, and he was found to be "highly intoxicated," failing field sobriety tests. An officer observed an open container of "Mr. Boston" vodka on the passenger side floor of the vehicle, according to a police report.
The charges filed against Karyczak were not specified in the police report, nor was any prior DWI offense that might have led to the requirement to have an interlocking device.
