An accident near Gates Circle shortly after midnight Friday led to driving while intoxicated charges against one of the drivers.
Jason Rodriguez, 27, of Hertel Avenue, was driving at a high rate of speed near Lafayette Avenue and Gates Circle and failed to yield, rear-ending another vehicle, according to Buffalo police.
A further investigation, a police report said, led to suspicions that Rodriguez was intoxicated. He was later found with a blood alcohol level of .19 percent.
Rodriguez is charged with DWI.
