Rochester, NY (February 24, 2020) – A two-car accident that resulted in one overturned vehicle last week resulted in major injuries to at least one person who passed away from those injuries at a hospital on Saturday, February 22nd.
Police stated that 31-year-old Christopher Wilson was riding in an unspecified car when it was struck by a Mazda SUV at the intersection of Burley Road and Lake Avenue in Rochester. The impact of the crash caused the Mazda to overturn onto its side.
According to responders, the driver of the Mazda fled the scene on foot and Wilson, as well as a passenger in the Mazda and the driver of the car were transported to nearby hospitals. Wilson succumbed to his injuries on Saturday, but the other two victims are expected to recover.
