Police have charged a West Seneca man with driving while intoxicated in the accident that claimed the life of West Seneca Democratic Chairman Daniel S. McParlane early Wednesday morning.

Robert J. Styn of West Seneca, no age or address given, was charged following the 12:10 a.m. accident on Indian Church Road, according to a press release issued by Capt. Edward Baker. West Seneca police, who would answer no questions for more than 15 hours after the crash, did not return phone calls seeking more information and indicated only that Styn had been arraigned and released, and that bad weather may have also been to blame.

West Seneca Supervisor Sheila Meegan confirmed early Wednesday morning the death of McParlane, 33, along with Erie County Democratic Chairman Jeremy J. Zellner and Thomas Diina, superintendent of the Jail Management Division of the Erie County Sheriff’s Office.
