PENDLETON, NY (WKBW) A father is charged with DWI under Leandra's Law for allegedly causing a crash at the intersection of South Transit Road and Fisk Road in Pendleton Friday night.

According to Niagara County Sheriff's deputies, Louis G. Friedly was attempting to turn left onto Fisk Road from South Transit, and entered the right-of-way of another vehicle.

The driver of that vehicle, Thomas Dipasquele, was taken to Erie County Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies arrested Friedly on the scene when they determined him to be legally intoxicated. Friedly's 13-year-old and 17-year-old sons were in the vehicle. They were not injured in the crash.
