Deputies report the arrest of a Clyde man following an investigation into a motorcycle crash that happened in October.

Richard Hewitt, age 28, of Clyde was charged with driving while intoxicated after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed around 7:30 p.m. on October 1st.

Deputies responded to the area of Clyde Road and State Route 31 in Lyons for the report of a 911 hang-up call that appeared to be in a vehicle traveling down Route 31.


The phone number came back to Hewitt.

Deputies then observed that Hewitt crashed his motorcycle on Canal Street, causing injury to himself and a passenger.

Both were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

However, one month later, Hewitt turned himself in to deputies after a test of his blood came back with a BAC of 0.12%.

he was charged with DWI and other offenses. Deputies said they were assisted by New York State Police, Lyons Fire Department, Wayne County ALS, and Lyons Town Ambulance.
