Westfield, Pa man charged with leaving the scene of an accident after vehicle overturns in Canisteo
CANISTEO, N.Y. (WENY) – A Westfield, Pennsylvania man was ticketed after a single-car wreck in the Town of Canisteo.
New York State Police say they were dispatched to State Route 36 for a rolled over vehicle. When troopers arrive, they say there were several people standing about the car but apparently the operator had left the scene.
State Police say the investigation revealed the vehicle had been traveling north on State Route 36 at a high rate of speed and changed lanes, hitting the guard wire. The vehicle then traveled 125 feet taking out 11 posts, two delineators and one road sign.
The vehicle then reportedly overturned and got tangled in the guard wire, coming to rest about 75 feet of the road.
NYS DOT responded and coned off the area and Pro Street Towing removed the vehicle.
Troopers were able to find the owner and operator of the vehicle by checking the registration on the vehicle.
As a result, 23-year-old Dustin Williams, who troopers say admitted to driving the vehicle, was issued tickets for leaving the scene of an accident, speeding and changing lanes unsafely.
