Cassadaga man charged with DWI, leaving scene of crash


A Chautauqua County man was charged with DWI after New York State police say he crashed into another vehicle and left the scene.

According to Troopers, 74-year-old Cassadaga resident Howard Roberts was headed north on Route 60 in Gerry when he veered into the southbound lane and struck a vehicle that was pulling a trailer.

At this point, Troopers say Roberts turned around and went south, but was followed by witnesses.

Eventually, Roberts’ vehicle became disabled in a parking lot and emergency responders went there.

Roberts was placed under arrest and taken to UPMC Hospital in Jamestown, where a blood sample was taken from him. The other driver was also taken there for non-life threatening injuries.

Roberts was charged with DWI and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
