BERGEN — A Bergen man has been charged after Genesee County sheriff’s deputies responded late Friday to a report that a vehicle and train collided on the tracks on Townline Road.
Deputies responded at 11:11 p.m. to the area of 7711 Townline Rd. They found the vehicle engulfed in flames and said the driver had fled on foot. The driver, Timothy M. Brady, 57, of Jericho Road, was found a short time later, not far from the scene. No injuries were reported.
Brady had allegedly been driving while intoxicated. He was charged with DWI, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, refusal to take breath test, leaving the scene of a property-damage accident and driving through, around or under a railroad barrier. Brady was released and is due to appear Oct. 8 in Bergen Town Court.
