Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office

¯ MAYVILLE — Deputies responded to the report of a motor vehicle accident with injury on Magnolia Stedman Road on Tuesday shortly before 5 p.m.

After an investigation, it was found that Raymond C. Frost, 79, of Sherman, who was traveling westbound, crossed the center line of the roadway. Traveling eastbound was a flatbed truck whose driver attempted to dodge Frost’s vehicle. Frost allegedly side-swiped the truck and he lost control of his vehicle, leaving the south side of the roadway and striking a utility pole head-on.

Frost and his passenger were treated at the scene for injuries by the Ashville Fire Department EMS personnel and were transported to local hospitals for treatment. Police say occupants of the flatbed truck were uninjured.
