A suspect is in hospital and facing charges following a two-car accident in Auburn on Friday night.
According to Auburn Police, around 10:00 pm officers were conducting a DWI checkpoint on the Arterial near Fulton St. when the driver of a vehicle allegedly refused to stop. The driver, identified as Michael DeMarco Jr., engaged officers in what was called a “slow speed pursuit” before he collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Grant Av. and Seymour St.
DeMarco was taken to Upstate in Syracuse, where he underwent surgery for unidentified injuries. The as-yet unidentified woman driving the second vehicle was treated and released from Auburn Community Hospital. Her 6-year old daughter was not injured.
The investigation is continuing. If you witnessed the incident or have any information, contact APD at 315-253-3231.
