Jared Wisniewski says he swerved to miss an animal in the road before crashing his vehicle into a ditch. The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office says the 34-year-old was drunk.
The crash happened Wednesday around 1:45 a.m. on North State Street in Salamanca. Deputies say Wisniewski’s vehicle ended up in a ditch and snow embankment.
The Cattaraugus man is charged with DWI and failure to keep right. He’s due back in court at a later date.
