Crash Sends Four to Hospitals

Two people were flown to Buffalo hospitals, and two others were hurt, during a two-vehicle crash on Route 16 in the Town of Hinsdale Friday evening.

Sheriff’s deputies say a vehicle driven by 36-year-old Jason Chapel of Salamanca was attempting to make a left turn when a vehicle driven by 32-year-old Barry Keeley hit the Chapel vehicle, causing it to flip end over end onto its roof.

Chapel and his 12-year-old daughter were flown by Mercy Flight to ECMC and Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, respectively, where they are both in stable condition. An 11-year-old girl in the Chapel vehicle was treated for minor injuries at Olean General Hospital, then released.

Keeley was treated for minor chest injuries at Olean General. He was cited for following too closely and traveling at an unsafe speed.

Fleet of Bentleys Heading to
Zippo/Case Museum on Thursday

The Zippo/Case Museum is rolling out the red carpet for an international fleet of 24 vintage Bentley automobiles from 11:30 to 2:30 on Thursday, May 21, as the North American Vintage Bentley organization brings their tour of the Twin Tiers to Bradford.

The museum will remain open to the public that day, offering not only an exploration of the two all-American brands, but also a chance to admire these rare luxury automobiles up close. The main Zippo/Case Museum parking lots off will be closed to accommodate the group that day, so visitors will be directed to utilize the museum’s overflow parking on Chestnut Street during the midday hours.

The Bentley owners will receive a tour of the museum from Zippo Ambassador Linda Meabon, and are utilizing the museum’s new event services to hold a private luncheon on the museum grounds.

The North American Vintage Bentley Meet attracts Bentley owners from around the world, with the high-end classic cars driven in trailers from all corners of the continental U.S. and several international members’ Bentleys traveling to the U.S. via cargo ship. The group conducts “hub tours,” a series of day drives following scenic byways out of a central location. This year, the group is using Ellicottville as the hub.
