A man who suffered an apparent head injury in an accident early Sunday morning on Route 33 and was flown by Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital is being accused of driving drunk and trying to flee the scene of a personal injury accident.
Lawrence D. Boggs, 23, of West Main Street, Batavia, reportedly was helped out of his overturned vehicle at 12:19 a.m. and then tried to run down Wortendyke Road.
He was grabbed and detained by the driver of the other vehicle involved in the accident.
Boggs is charged with DWI, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, speeding, failing to stop at a stop sign and unlicensed operator.
He is listed in stable condition at Strong.
The other driver, whose name was not released by the Sheriff's Office, was transported to UMMC with a minor injury, treated and released.
Boggs was driving a 1999 Dodge van southbound on Wortendyke Road when he allegedly failed to stop for a stop sign and stuck a 2008 Hummer eastbound on Route 33.
The van traveled off the roadway into a ditch and overturned.
The driver of the Hummer and other witnesses helped Boggs get out of the van.
The accident was investigated by Deputy Howard Carlson.
Assisting at the scene were other deputies, State Troopers, Mercy EMS, Mercy Flight and the East Pembroke Volunteer Fire Department.
