A Niagara Falls man was arrested and charged with drunken driving after he failed to negotiate a ramp onto the Robert Moses Parkway late Friday night and crashed into trees and fences.

Sean Payne, 43, of Orchard Parkway, was apparently driving along the Lasalle Expressway around 10:40 p.m. Friday when he failed to negotiate the ramp, according to State Police.

His vehicle struck two trees and two fences before rolling over and coming to rest on the passenger side on a walking path below the expressway, police said. He was treated and released at Erie County Medical Center and has been charged with driving while intoxicated.

He is scheduled to appear in court on June 19.
