Man charged after crash at country club

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A city resident faces a drunk driving charge after being involved in a one-vehicle accident on the grounds of Lockport Town & Country Club.

Christopher A. Sidote, 22, 63 Harrison Ave., was charged with driving while intoxicated, unsafe lane change, improper lane use and unreasonable speed around 11:30 p.m. Friday.

According to Lockport Police Department, the vehicle that Sidote was driving on East Avenue left the road, went down the hill at the country club and struck a tree.
