A one-month-old baby was critically injured in a roll-over accident caused by an allegedly drunk driver late Wednesday, state police in Lockport said.

The crash occurred at Robinson Road and Old Beattie Road at about 11 p.m. Troopers who responded found a 2011 Toyota Corolla on its roof. No one was inside.

Troopers later located the suspected driver and passengers – including the baby – at a nearby convenience store, police said. All were injured.

The baby was rushed to Women and Children’s Hospital and was listed in critical but stable condition.

The adults, identified as Thaddeus Nicpon, Brandon Nicpon and Heather Eagan, were taken by ambulance to area hospitals to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Thaddeus Nicpon was charged with driving while intoxicated under Leandra’s Law because of the baby in the vehicle.

He was also charged with speeding, moving from a lane unsafely and passing a red light.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies assisted at the scene.
