Driver charged with DWI after collision

A 22-year-old Clarence man was arrested Tuesday night after he allegedly drove off from a drunken-driving-related car crash on Elmwood Avenue.

Justin R. Shields of Thompson Road, was stopped at Main and Allen streets moments after the accident at Elmwood and Allen about 10:20 p.m. After he registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.27 percent, more than three times the state’s legal limit, he was charged with driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident without reporting it. He faces Buffalo City Court proceedings later this month.
