Investigators say 41-year-old Torrence Dyck of Irondequoit hit another vehicle around 11:30 p.m., sending it careening into a porch on Myrtle Street off of Lyell Avenue. Officials say Dyck left the scene but officers were able to later locate him. He is charged with DWI and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
