ELLERY – A Sinclairville man who was involved in an Saturday morning single-vehicle rollover accident is facing a slew of charges.

According to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office, Christopher E. Dellahoy, 24, was involved in the accident on Pickard Road around 1:40 a.m. that led to the vehicle catching fire with possible entrapment. When they arrived on the scene, all occupants had exited the vehicle.

After an investigation, deputies became aware that Dellahoy, who was already wanted by the department on an outstanding warrant, was the operator of the car and fled the scene before their arrival. Additional patrol units from the department and state police were requested to the scene and a perimeter was established. Sheriff’s K-9 unit also assisted.

In addition to the probation warrant, he was also charged with driving while intoxicated, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and several other traffic violations.
