Local crash leads to drunk driving arrest

ATTICA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A crash along an Attica road led one man to serious charges of drinking and driving last week.

Police say they investigated a crash that sent one car off the highway and into a tree, causing heavy damage to the front of the car.

When the driver, identified by police as 27-year-old Ryan W. Blatt, continued to drive his car, police say they caught up with him and started treating him for minor wounds.

First responders brought Blatt to a local hospital where police say he acted belligerently. Police say they learned he drove drunk after testing his sobriety.

Blatt stands charged with driving while intoxicated and disorderly conduct.
