Canandaigua man goes on driving rampage

Canandaigua Police say they don't know what caused a 58-year-old man to go on a driving rampage through that city this morning, crashing his car half-a-dozen times before he was finally stopped by good Samaritans.


They say William Lantier of Canandaigua hit nine other cars in a wild ride through downtown Cananadaigua. Witness Kevin Anagos told 13 WHAM he wasn't stopping for anything, even though his car had blown tires and lost its front end.



Anagos and another driver tried to stop Lantier, finally using their cars to box him in on Main Street. He repeatedly rammed the car in front of him trying to shove it out of the way until Anagos and the other driver smashed out his side window, reached in, shut off the car and took the keys.


Police arrived seconds later. Sergeant Scott Kadien says they aren't getting much out of the suspect. He says it was a very dangerous situation.



Police say Lantier is in jail on $10,000 bond. He's charged with DWI, six counts of leaving the scene and other offenses.
