Names released in Charlotte crash
The names of the victims have been released following Sunday afternoon's car crash.
According to the Chau-tauqua County Sheriff's Department at approximately 2:10 p.m. two vehicles were traveling northbound on Route 60.
The first of the vehicles, a minivan driven by Joel A Marsh, 48, of Route 60 Charlotte began to slow in order to make a left turn into a driveway. Phillip Anderson, 21, of Evelyn Drive, Jamestown, operator of the second vehicle, apparently failed to observe the stopped minivan, and subsequently struck the vehicle from behind.
The impact of the collision forced Marsh's vehicle into the path of a southbound tractor trailer driven by Thomas J. Uebelhoer, 58, of Attica. The minivan struck the rear of the tractor trailer, causing extensive damage to both vehicles.
Both Joel A Marsh and his passenger, JoAnn Marsh, 48, of Route 60 were flown to Erie County Medical Center for evaluation. Anderson was taken to WCA via ambulance, where he was treated and released. The tractor-trailer driver was uninjured.
Anderson was issued a traffic citation, and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
