Four-vehicle crash leaves six injured, one driver charged

A four-vehicle crash Friday evening on the city's East Side left six people with non-life-threatening injuries and one of the drivers accused of drunken driving, Buffalo police reported.

The chain-reaction crash occurred at about 7:50 p.m. at Bailey Avenue and Broadway. Three cars were stopped at a red light, when another vehicle approached the intersection and struck the car in front of it, causing that vehicle to strike another and so on, police stated.

The six injured people were treated for injuries described by Buffalo police as apparently minor.

Officers charged Paul Mason, 54, of Shirley Avenue, with driving while intoxicated, according to police reports. Mason refused to submit to a chemical test, and some marijuana was found by police in the vehicle's glove box, those reports added.
