A 28-year-old Springville man was treated at Erie County Medical Center for head lacerations and ticketed for drunken driving after a one-car crash at about 10 p.m. Thursday on the shoulder of Boston State Road in the Town of Boston.

Stephen Rieske, driving alone, was southbound when he apparently lost control of his vehicle, which went off the east shoulder and into a ditch before smashing through wooden fence and overturning.

Rieske was charged with driving while intoxicated, speed not reasonable and prudent, failure to use a designated lane and no seat belt. He faces Concord Town Court proceedings in several weeks.
