An Erie County Sheriff's Deputy had a lucky escape after being hit by a suspected drunk driver.

The incident happened after last Sunday's Bills game in Orchard Park.

Investigators say the Deputy was directing traffic at Southwestern Boulevard and Abbott Road when a truck made an improper turn at the intersection, side-swiping the Deputy.  The Deputy wasn't hurt.

23-year-old Hayden Newcomb is now charged with DWI and three State Vehicle and Traffic Law violations.
