Alleged drunk driver flees, crashes vehicle

Erie County Executive Chris Collins was a first-time judge this year. Here, he's talking politics at Carmine's Restaurant. Carmine's won the Best Seafood category for their Shrimp Cargo. Excellent!

The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office says a drunk driver tried to flee when they attempted to pull him over, but say he quickly crashed his car into a drainage ditch.

Deputies say they saw 26-year-old Corey Kanner operating his vehicle erratically around 1 a.m. on Sunday on Hiram Road in the Town of Arcade. When they went to pull him over, authorities say Kanner fled and re-entered the highway. After a short distance, Kanner crashed his vehicle into a drainage ditch on Eagle Street in the Town of Freedom.

He was taken into custody without further incident and taken to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital for minor injuries.

Kanner is facing DWI charges as well as 13 other vehicle and traffic violations. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
