SOUTH VALLEY – A 72-year-old Amherst man is facing DWI charges after driving his car off an embankment in Cattaraugus County on Wednesday.

New York State Police allege Steven Obe was driving drunk when he failed to stop at the stop sign on Bone Run Road, continued across West Perimeter Road, drove over a guard rail and down the embankment.

Troopers say Obe was uninjured in the crash.

Obe, police say, was placed under arrest after failing several standardized field sobriety tests at the scene.

At the New York State Police Barracks in Jamestown, police say Obe blew a breath sample of .10.

Troopers say Obe was issued tickets and released. He is scheduled to appear in the Town of South Valley Court next month.
