Around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday Amherst Police Officer Andrew Edwards saw a car with serious front-end damage traveling down Cottonwood Drive. After pulling the man over, the officer determined that the 41-year-old driver, who lives in Tonawanda, had been involved in the hit-and-run accident earlier in the day. The driver was apparently under the influence of drugs, and was found with oxycodone and Xanax after he was taken to police headquarters.
