Multiple residents have wondered about an accident over the weekend at the intersection of Route 417/19 and West State Street, occurring on Saturday November 4 at 7:41pm according to police

Wellsville Police report that a Wellsville man was struck in the road and taken to the local hospital for evaluation. We asked the man how he was feeling today:

“I’m doing OK just some road rash with bruises on both elbows and a bruise on the kept side of my back.”

The driver was issued a ticket according to the report from police:

From the Wellsville Police Department,

“Police were dispatched to a car vs pedestrian accident at the intersection of the Arterial and W State St.  The investigation determined that the driver was making a left turn off of W State St onto the Arterial and did not see the pedestrian crossing the Arterial in the crosswalk.

He was transported to Jones Memorial Hospital by Wellsville Ambulance for a complaint of back pain. The driver was issued a traffic ticket for Failure to Yield the Right of Way to a Pedestrian in the Crosswalk.”

*Why no names? We do not publish the names of those issued traffic violations and we do not release the names of those injured in accidents unless they are charged with a felony.
