Man Headed to State Prison for Police Chase

A man who took Salamanca police on a chase that ended in a crash that seriously injured him and his two passengers will spend the next 1 ½ to three years in state prison.

31-year-old Matthew Redeye of Salamanca sped past a line of cars, including a police cruiser, last July on Broad Street. He was driving at about 70 mph when he crashed into a metal utility pole. His passengers were thrown into the windshield and both suffered facial injuries. One also had internal injuries.

Redeye was trapped in the vehicle and, after being freed, spent a couple of days in ECMC in Buffalo for treatment of injuries to his lower extremities. After being released from the hospital he was sent to Cattaraugus County Jail.
