City of Tonawanda man charged with DWI after 3-car accident

A City of Tonawanda man was charged with driving while intoxicated and other charges following a traffic accident Friday afternoon.

City of Tonawanda Police said Patrick F. Roche, of William Street, struck the rear of a car that was stopped at a red light at Main and Delton streets, and pushed that vehicle into another car.

Roche was charged with DWI, aggravated unlicensed operation, imprudent speed, following too closely, open alcohol in a motor vehicle, and refusing to take a breath test.

Police said Roche’s driver’s license had been revoked because of a DWI incident in January in the Town of Wheatfield.
