Alleged drunk driver hits motorcyclist who was driving without license

GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. (WIVB) – Erie County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Kenmore man for DWI after an accident with a motorcycle Sunday on Grand Island.

Investigators were called to Grand Island Boulevard, where witnesses reported a car driven by 35-year-old Anthony Viscuso veered into the driving lane where it collided with a motorcycle driven by Eugene Kelsey III, of Grand Island, sideswiping and knocking the motorcycle over. Kelsey suffered a possible broken leg and was transported to ECMC for treatment.

After field sobriety tests, deputies determined Viscuso was intoxicated. He submitted to a chemical breath test and the results showed a BAC of .08 percent. He was charged with DWI. Viscuso is scheduled to appear in Grand Island Court at a later date.

Deputies say the driver of the motorcycle did not have a valid motorcycle license and his driver’s license had been suspended for past alcohol-related violations. Kelsey was charged with unlicensed operation of a motorcycle and second degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
