Town of Union Crash Leads to Port Crane Woman Charged with DWI
A Port Crane woman is facing charges, including DWI after a crash in the Town of Union last Friday.
According to the Broome County Sheriff's Office, 35-year-old Kassandra Wolfran was traveling on Route 17 when she attempted to cut in front of a tractor-trailer. Her vehicle was then struck by the tractor-trailer, causing both vehicles to go into the guardrail. DOT was forced to close the passing lanes in both directions to clean up the debris.
During the on-scene investigation, Wolfran displayed slurred speech, balance issues, and displayed other signs that suspected intoxication. A breathalyzer test determined Wolfran's blood alcohol content (BAC) was .18 percent, more than double the legal limit. It was further determined that the vehicle's registration was suspended at the time of the crash.
Wolfran was charged with the following:
- Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated with a BAC of over 0.18 percent
- Driving While Intoxicated with a BAC of over .08 percent
- Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Suspended Registration
- Moving From a Lane Unsafely
She was arraigned and released on an appearance ticket to answer the charges later this month.
