Chili, NY (August 20, 2019) – Four passengers, as well as the driver of a vehicle, were hospitalized after a car crash that took place on Tuesday morning, August 20th. The accident occurred shortly after midnight along Humphrey Road at Brook Road.
According to deputies, Ryan Dewald, 24, of LeRoy, New York, was speeding when he missed a 90-degree turn. He was subsequently ejected from the vehicle after he struck a berm and crashed into a wooded area. Dewald had four passengers in the car with him at the time.
Emergency responders were called to the scene where the front-seat passenger had to be cut out of the vehicle with the jaws of life. Three passengers in the back were able to exit on their own. All five injured parties, each between the ages of 17 and 24, were rushed to a nearby hospital.
Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have been factors in the incident. Dewald was arrested for reckless driving and speeding.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
