No charges filed in Route 33 crash

By Philip Anselmo

The driver of a vehicle that crashed into a utility pole along Route 33 near West Bergen Road yesterday afternoon will not face charges for leaving the scene of the accident, Genesee County sheriff's deputies said. Chief Deputy Gordon Dibble reported today that the driver, whose crash was the result of his falling asleep at the wheel, was located without any difficulty following the accident. He had not been drinking and was advised not to leave such a scene in the future.

Dibble explained in an e-mail: "Having someone leave the scene out of ignorance, to get help, for convenience, especially in car/deer accidents, happens often."
