Driver charged with Leandra's Law DWI

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — WHEATFIELD — A man involved in two accidents in the space of 15 minutes Tuesday afternoon has been arrested under the Leandra's Law, according to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office.

Pedro Gay-Carbonell, 58, was charged with driving while intoxicated (drugs), endangering the welfare of a child and failure to keep right. Leandra's Law is a New York State law making it an automatic felony to drive drunk with a person age 15 or younger inside the vehicle.

Gay-Carbonell had his 11-year-old son with him in the vehicle at the time of the accidents, according to the report.

At 1:20 p.m. Niagara County dispatch recevied a call of a two vehicle accident on Ward Road, near Niagara Falls Boulevard. Deputy Joe Tortorella determined Gay-Carbonell was under the influence of drugs.

While at the scene, a third vehicle pulled up and the driver advised Gay-Carbonell also struck his vehicle on Saunders Settlement Road in the Town of Lewiston about 15 minutes earlier.

There were no injuries as a result of either accident. Gay-Carbonell was remanded to Niagara County jail on $750 bail.
