Depew driver faces DWI charge after head-on crash on Transit

A Depew man was charged with driving while intoxicated after a head-on crash closed both directions of Transit Road in Amherst for two hours late Saturday.

Kevin A. Olewniczak, 26, was charged with DWI after his 2004 Saturn crossed the double yellow line and struck a 2008 BMW being driven south by Anna K. Sholk, 19, of Lockport, Amherst police said in a statement. The crash occurred near Dodge Road at around 10:30 p.m.

Olewniczak was treated at Erie County Medical Center and released after being taken there by a Twin City Ambulance. Police said Sholk was transported to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. While the hospital said it had no information on her condition, a relative posted on Twitter that she is OK.
