Batavia man charged with aggravated DWI after crash

A Batavia man was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated early Friday morning after a one-car crash in Genesee County, authorities said.

Matthew R. Reiner, 29, drove off the road shortly after 12:30 a.m. on Route 98 in Elba, the Genesee County Sheriff's Office said.

In addition to aggravated DWI, Reiner faces an additional DWI charge, as well as several traffic violations, including driving at an unreasonable speed through a yield sign, failure to yield the right of way at a yield sign and unsafely moving from a lane.

The Sheriff's Office did not specify what Reiner's blood-alcohol level was, though an aggravated DWI charge is lodged when a person's BAC is alleged to be at least 0.18 percent, more than double the legal limit.

Reiner is due in Elba Town Court on June 14.
