Van Buren, NY (May 26, 2020) – State Police officials were dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident involving an intoxicated driver on Monday evening, May 25th. It happened at around 6:00 p.m. at the intersection of East Sorrell Hill and West Sorrell Hill Roads in the town of Van Buren.
According to authorities, a man identified as 22-year-old Jesse William Hummell, of Memphis, NY, was heading east on East Sorrell Hill Road when he lost control at the intersection. Hummell struck both a guard rail and a fence during the crash and emergency crews responded to the area.
