Orchard Park man charged with DWI in rollover crash

An Orchard Park man was charged with driving while intoxicated after police say he lost control of his vehicle, drove off a road, struck a sign and rolled over several times in a crash late Saturday in Orchard Park.

Stephen J. Wojciechowski, 24, of Hillside Avenue, was driving north on California Road, near Milestrip Road, at about 11:20 p.m. when the crash took place, according to Orchard Park police.

Wojciechowski, who was uninjured, was arrested at the scene and taken to police headquarters, where he registered a 0.22 percent blood-alcohol content – nearly three times the legal limit, according to the police. In addition to DWI, he was ticketed for speeding, unsafe lane change and refusing a roadside breath-screening device.

He is due back in Orchard Park Town Court on Jan. 9.
