An Illinois man is facing multiple charges after leaving the scene of an injury accident in Ontario County.
The Sheriff’s Office and first responders were sent to the intersection of Routes 5 & 20 and County Road 6 around 7:22 on Sunday evening when a State DDSO van was rear-ended by a Ford pickup that left the scene. Witnesses followed the pickup until it crashed into a snowbank in a nearby parking lot and the driver walked into a nearby Express Mart.
Deputies and Geneva Police arrested 46-year old Chad Roberson of Glen Carbon, Illinois. He has been charged with DWI, leaving the scene of an injury accident, being an unlicensed driver and operating an unregistered vehicle.
The driver of the van, 46-year old Cindy Starnes of Penn Yan, and an adult male patient were taken to Geneva General Hospital for treatment of head and neck pain.
