Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike reports an accident, which occurred on Welker Road in the Town of Barrington.
No injuries were reported. However, Spike says that Thomas F. O’Mara, Jr., 17, of Elmira; and his passenger, suffered some minor knee scrapes after a 2007 Chevy was traveling down a steep hill, failed to navigate a curve, and left the roadway.
The vehicle then traveled down an embankment coming to rest on its top. The vehicle suffered heavy damage and had to be towed from the scene.
Investigation determined that the driver’s inexperience was the primary factor in cause of accident.
Additional information was not immediately available.
