Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s deputies say a car driven by 22-year-old William Pavlicin of Greenville, New York, was waiting to make a left turn when the tractor-trailer driven by 57-year-old Jaymie Smith of Odessa, New York, rear-ended it, and sent it into oncoming traffic, where it collided with a vehicle driven by 42-year-old Brian Aleo of Hudson, New York. Aleo’s vehicle spun around and hit a vehicle that was parked at Mikey’s Emporium.
Aleo was taken to Olean General Hospital for treatment of his injuries. No one else was hurt. Smith was issued tickets for following too closely and driving out of class.
