A 25 year old Seneca Falls man that led Geneva Police on a high speed chase back on September 13th faces numerous charges in connection to that incident.
Geneva Police spotted Joshua Jones speeding on his motorcycle on Route 5 with the front wheel off the ground. When they attempted to make a stop, Jones, who had a passenger on the back of the motorcycle, fled at a high rate of speed into Seneca County and headed south on State Route 96A. Because of the high speed and the alleged reckless manner Jones was driving, the pursuit was called off. However, authorities later came upon a wrecked motorcycle and found Jones and his passenger, 26 year old Brittany Meacham, of Seneca Falls, laying in the road, seriously injured.
Jones broke his neck, back, left arm and ribs, while Meacham suffered multiple cuts, road rash and burn injuries that required multiple skin grafts. Both were hospitalized at Strong Memorial for two weeks before being discharged.
Jones is charged with felony vehicular assault, DWI, aggravated DWI, reckless driving and speeding. He was released after his court appearance because of his injuries but will be back in Fayette Town Court at a later date.
