TOWN OF GAINESVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) - A motor vehicle accident in the Town of Gainesville resulted in an arrest for DWI.

Police say on June 7th, they responded to a motor vehicle accident on Lamont Road. Investigation reveals the operator, 61-year-old Kathleen Conte of Wethersfield, had been traveling on Lamont Road when she struck a deer which had entered the highway into the path of her vehicle.

Investigation at the scene would later lead to Conte's arrest for Driving While Intoxicated. She was transported to the Warsaw Station where a breath test was conducted resulting in a BAC of .09 %.

She was later released on an appearance ticket and will answer the charge at a later date in the Gainesville Town Court.

A 73-year-old male passenger in the vehicle sustained minor injury as a result of the collision, but refused any medical treatment at the scene.
