Niagara Gazette — Falls Police Traffic Division investigators say a crash that took the life of a motorcycle rider will go to the Niagara County District Attorney for review.

The crash occurred at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday at 68th Street and Niagara Falls Boulevard.

Investigators said a motorcycle driven by Michael Paul, 25, of the Falls, was traveling eastbound on the boulevard when it slammed into a car making a left-hand turn. 

Shana Wallace, 21, of Lockport, was traveling westbound and told police she didn't see the motorcycle before making the turn.

Paul was thrown from his bike and suffered severe injuries. He was rushed to the Erie County Medical Center where he died.

Crash investigators issued five tickets to Wallace. She was charged with failure to yield right of way, no seat belt, having an open container in a vehicle, failed inspection brakes and failed inspection tires. Wallace passed field sobriety tests at the scene.

Traffic officers said their investigation of the crash is continuing.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
