Minor injuries were reported in an early Saturday morning accident on Route 39 in Sheridan. Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Deputies and EMS were dispatched to a reported one-vehicle personal injury accident around 12:43 a.m. Upon investigation, the operator of the vehicle, Efrain J. Alguir-Rodriguez, 25, of Dunkirk was traveling westbound and was attempting to pass a westbound vehicle in a no passing zone. During the time of the incident, another vehicle was traveling eastbound on Route 39.
