A Gowanda man faces drunken driving and other charges in connection with an accident here early Thursday.

Cattaraugus County sheriff's deputies said Roger J. Kifner Jr., 38, was traveling on Hammond Hill Road near Zoar Valley Road in East Otto at about 2 a.m. when his vehicle crossed over the center line and went off the opposite side of the road before overturning in a ditch.

Kifner escaped injury, but was charged with felony counts of DWI and aggravated unlicensed operation, along with charges of refusing a Breathalyzer test, false impersonation, obstruction of governmental administration, driving without insurance and other traffic violations.

Arraigned in East Otto Town Court, he is in custody in lieu of $3,000 bail.
