Deputies report a vehicle driven by James Savarese, 50, of Seneca Falls was stopped at the light when he was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Paul F. Carissimi,  61, of Seneca Falls.


Upon further investigation, deputies determined Carissimi was intoxicated. He was charged with following too closely, DWI, and Aggravated DWI with a BAC over 0.18%.

Deputies say Carissimi was issued appearance tickets and will appear in the town of Tyre at a later date to answer the charges.

Deputies were assisted by the Seneca Falls Police Department .
