SENECA NATION - Deputies arrested a pedestrian who fought with authorities and medical personnel at the scene of a one-car crash. They then arrested the driver of the car for DWI.
Erie County Sheriff's deputies and Seneca Nation marshals were called to Rt. 438 on the reservation around 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning for a one-vehicle crash where the driver had struck a utility pole.
Deputies arriving on scene say they found 28-year-old Steven Young interfering with medical personnel. When authorities confronted him, they say Young became hostile and uncooperative. He then allegedly struggled while being taken into custody.
Young has been charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing medical emergency personnel, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest. He was taken to the Erie County Holding Center.
After interviewing the driver of the vehicle, deputies placed her under arrest. Kelsey Lay, 21, of Collins is charged with DWI with a .19 percent BAC - over twice the legal limit. She also faces numerous other vehicle and traffic infractions.
Lay had minor injuries after the crash and was treated at the scene. She was released to a third party.
