The driver of a vehicle that went off the road at a Springville intersection was charged early Sunday with driving while intoxicated, according to the Erie County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded shortly after 7:30 a.m. to a report of a vehicle off the road at Sharp and North streets. The driver apparently had tried to make a left turn onto Sharp Street while traveling at an excessive speed, deputies said.

Kyle D. Wiedemann, 23, of Sharp Street, failed field sobriety tests, deputies said, and a breath test indicated a blood-alcohol content of 0.17.

Wiedemann was cited for speed not reasonable and prudent, as well as charged with DWI, deputies said. His vehicle was towed and was to be held for 12 hours; Wiedemann was released in the custody of a third party, pending an appearance in Springville Village Court.
