The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

Re­ports of a ve­hi­cle hit­ting an­other ve­hi­cle and flee­ing the scene led to the ar­rest of an Or­chard Park woman, po­lice said Satur­day.

Diana Deeds, 34, was charged with ag­gra­vated driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated and leav­ing the scene of an ac­ci­dent.

Or­chard Park po­lice said Deeds’ ar­rest fol­lowed a re­port of an in­vivid­ual driv­ing reck­lessly on Route 219, hit­ting a guard rail and rear-end­ing a car near Duerr Road and flee­ing the scene Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Of­fi­cers said they lo­cated a car with ex­ten­sive dam­age on Pow­ers Road and ar­rested Deeds af­ter she failed sev­eral so­bri­ety tests.

A Breath­a­lyzer test, po­lice said, put her blood-al­co­hol level at 0.20 per­cent, more than two times the le­gal limit.
