Olean man arrested for DWI after hit-and-run accident

On March 2, 2020, SP Olean Troopers arrested Richard S. Kehler, 43, of Olean, NY for Driving While Intoxicated.

Troopers investigating a two-car hit-and-run accident which had occurred on Delevan Avenue in the city of Olean determined Kehler had been operating a vehicle while in an intoxicated condition and fled the scene of the crash. He was later located at his residence. He refused to perform standardized field sobriety tests. Kehler was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where he refused to submit to a chemical breath test.

Kehler was released with appearance tickets for Olean City Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
