Depew man charged in Villenova accident

VILLENOVA — A Depew man is being cited for accident that occurred Saturday afternoon.

At around 2:18 p.m., Chautauqua County sheriff’s deputies responded to the incident on Mile Strip Road. An investigation found that Eugene Kornacki, 32, of Depew was traveling northeast at an unsafe speed which caused him to lose control of his vehicle, crossing into the oncoming lane of traffic, and strike another vehicle.

As a result of this accident one person was transported to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital in Springville with minor injuries. Kornacki was issued a traffic citation for speed not reasonable or prudent and is scheduled to appear in the Town of Villenova Court at a later date.
