BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- Buffalo Police have arrested an individual in connection with a fatal DWI accident over the weekend.

Police arrested 23-year-old Christian Flagg, charging him with Vehicular Manslaughter, DWI and Reckless Driving.

Police say Flagg was driving north on Memorial Drive near Paderewski Drive around 1:15 a.m. Saturday morning when he apparently drove over a traffic circle, sending the vehicle out of control. The vehicle then struck a pole and rolled over, ejecting the passenger.

The passenger, 23-year-old Adrian Swain of Buffalo was rushed to ECMC where he died from his injuries.

Flagg is currently being held at the Erie County Holding Center on $100,000 bail, and is due in court on May 20th.
