A 67-year-old Holley man apparently suffered a medical emergency while driving through Le Roy at 4 a.m., Thursday, causing a series of accidents that led to a utility pole being knocked down and heavy damage to construction trailers at Wolcott Street School.
Douglas M. Howe was reportedly eastbound on East Main Street when he attempted a three-point turn in a 10-wheeler in the area of 57 E. Main St.
Le Roy PD reports that Howe drove the truck over the curb and broke some large branches off a tree in front of that residence.
He then proceeded west for a short distance and his truck went up over the curb in front of 44 E. Main St. The truck struck and snapped a utility pole and crashed into a cobblestone wall.
Howe then apparently backed the truck up and proceeded west on East Main Street. He then drove the truck up over the curb in front of Wolcott Street School. The truck continued south where it struck two construction trailers near the main entrance to the school. The trailers suffered heavy damage and were pushed into the school building, which suffered minor damage.
Howe was transported to UMMC by Le Roy Ambulance for treatment of minor injuries and medical evaluation.
No charges are anticipated at this time.
Assisting at the scene was the Sheriff's Office and State Police and Le Roy Volunteer Fire Department.
