TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Although his vehicle was damaged, a North Tonawanda man said he “did not remember hitting a car” when he was charged with DWI and leaving the scene of an accident.
City of Tonawanda police say Daniel Duguay, 49, rear-ended a vehicle stopped in traffic on Twin City Highway at Luskin Dr. Sunday afternoon. After this, he allegedly drove away.
The person who was crashed into followed Duguay’s vehicle to an address on Division St. in North Tonawanda and proceeded to call police.
Duguay was subsequently interviewed by police and revealed that he had “a few beers at home” and was headed to a friend’s house.
After being tested for sobriety, Duguay was charged with aggravated DWI, leaving the scene of an accident, following too closely and driving with an expired license.
Police say they also found a baggie of marijuana and a pipe in the back seat of Duguay’s vehicle.
His blood-alcohol content was allegedly more than twice the legal limit.
Duguay was held on $250 bail.
