Fatal Crash Victim Identified

Police have released the name of the woman who died when a man who was charged with DWI hit a car head-on Saturday in Cuba.

71-year-old Amelia Murray of Rushford was taken to Olean General Hospital after the crash at 6:45 p.m. on North Shore Road, but was then taken by Mercy Flight to ECMC in Buffalo, where she died two hours later.

Police say 46-year-old William Felicetti of Niagara Falls left his hunting camp and was on Mount Monroe when he didn’t slow down for yield sign and hit a car driven by 51-year-old Kenneth McElheny of Rushford. Murray was a passenger in McElheny’s car. McElheny and his other passenger, 50-year-old Susan McElheny, were treated at Olean General for minor injuries and then released.

Cuba Police say they are waiting for an accident reconstruction team to finish its work before deciding whether to charge Felicetti with anything besides driving while intoxicated.
