Geoffrey Chandler

The driver of a septic tank truck that overturned Tuesday in Boston is facing drunken driving charges, according to State Police.

Geoffrey Chandler, 33, of Orchard Park drove the truck off the road and onto its side, according to troopers who responded to the scene on Zimmerman Road. No other passengers were inside the truck and no injuries were reported. The contents of the septic tank were not spilled and later safely transferred to another truck, troopers said.

Chandler failed field sobriety tests administered at the scene. His blood alcohol content was measured at .25 percent, more than three times the legal limit for intoxication. Chandler was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated before being released with a date to return to Boston Town Court.
