Man Gets Three Years' Probation for
Leaving Scene of Fatal Accident
A man charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident in Randolph has been sentenced in Cattaraugus County Court to three years’ probation.
25-year-old Benjamin Goon of Jamestown hit 17-year-old Federico Flores in the early morning hours of October 10, 2010, when Flores was walking home from work at a dairy farm. The accident happened at the intersection of Route 394 and School House Road. Goon told prosecutors he got out to see what he had hit, but didn’t see anything so he left. A passing motorist found Flores’s body about eight hours later.
Goon had originally been charged with a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident, but was sentenced for a misdemeanor.
