Waterloo driver faces felony charges after leaving scene of crash

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports that on November 9th at approximately 5 a.m. deputies arrested a 22-year-old Waterloo resident after he left the scene of a property damage accident in the Town of Junius.

Bryce Burkett, 22, of Waterloo was traveling east on State Route 318 when he left the south shoulder of the road, damaging signs, striking a culvert, and traveling down an embankment, according to deputies.

When his vehicle came to rest – it had suffered extensive damage. It was subsequently towed from the scene.

Deputies say that before that happened – Burkett had left the scene. He was located at a residency nearby at a later time.

Investigation determined that Burkett was intoxicated, resulting in multiple charges – including three felonies.

Burkett was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving with a BAC over 0.08 percent, and aggravated unlicensed operation – all felonies. He was also charged with crossing hazardous markings, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Deputies say Burkett was transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility pending arraignment.
