ROYALTON – A Lockport man walked away uninjured following a rollover crash on Riddle Road early this morning but faced a number of charges after Niagara County sheriff’s deputies determined he had been driving drunk.

Nicholas J. Buscarino, 34, of Chestnut Ridge Road, was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving while ability impaired, moving from a lane unsafely and speeding around 2 a.m. in the 7000 block of Riddle Road.

Officers responded to a rollover crash and found Buscarino walking away from the vehicle. Buscarino told deputies he was uninjured and was evaluated at the scene by emergency medical technicians as a precaution.

Buscarino told police he had been drinking at a bar on Goodrich Road. He said as he rounded the sharp bend on Riddle Road he realized he was going too fast and then lost control of his truck and crashed into the ditch, rolling the truck onto its roof.

Buscarino was found with a blood alcohol of .12 percent, which is above the legal limit of .08 percent and was charged and held on $250 bail.
