A West Seneca man is facing drunk driving charges after investigators say he went the wrong way on the 190, causing a multi-vehicle crash.

State Police say Robert Deppeler, 23, was driving southbound in the northbound lanes just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday when his vehicle collided with two oncoming vehicles between Exit 6 (Elm Street) and Exit 7 (Church Street).

Deppeler and the two other drivers were taken to ECMC with non-life threatening injuries.

Deppeler is charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless endangerment, reckless driving and a number of vehicle and traffic violations.
