Police: PennDOT worker drove drunk to crash scene
CHARLEROI, Pa. - December 8, 2010 -- A PennDOT employee has resigned after allegedly driving drunk to the scene of a fatal car crash last month.
State transportation officials say 51-year-old Michael Budzanoski resigned after being charged last week with driving under the influence.
Police say Budzanoski was drunk when he arrived at a crash scene in Fallowfield Township, Washington County on November 5 in a PennDOT vehicle. Budzanoski allegedly had a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit for drivers.
PennDOT District Executive Joe Szczur says Budzanoski's primary job is to take photos at crash scenes.
A phone listing for Budzanoski could not immediately be located Wednesday.
