Erie County sheriff’s deputies charged a Salamanca woman with driving while intoxicated and other charges early Sunday following a one-car accident on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation.

Deputy Ryan Rogers arrested Joni J. Jamison, 53, and charged her with aggravated driving while intoxicated, failure to keep right and failure to maintain the road.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Jamison drove off the road on Route 438 and struck a utility pole, knocking down electrical wires. A breath test revealed her blood-alcohol content to be .18 percent, more than twice the legal limit, deputies said.

She was processed at the North Collins station and released on appearance tickets for North Collins Court. Rogers was assisted in the investigation by Deputy George Avery.
