LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — An Amherst man is behind bars for driving with a blood alcohol content over twice the legal limit.
Vecheslav Moroz, 47, was involved in a two-car personal injury accident after he allegedly followed another car too closely. The driver of the vehicle ahead of Moroz, 60-year-old Bernard Daley and his wife were transported to Eastern Niagara Hospital in Lockport.
While interviewing Moroz, Troopers noticed he smelled like alcohol and issued standard field sobriety tests. He failed those tests and was placed under arrest.
At processing, troopers issued a breathalyzer, which came out at .18 percent blood alcohol. Moroz was issued citations for aggravated DWI, following too closely, moved from lane unsafely and failed to use designated lane.
Moroz will be in Lockport Town Court on Dec. 11.
