Scotia, NY (May 25, 2019) – On Wednesday, around 7:00 p.m., police reported that a woman lost her life in a fatal pedestrian accident on Hawk Street. The accident took place just before the woman was supposed to be in a parade.
The accident took place at the annual Scotia-Glenville Memorial Day Parade. Police say that the victim, a 69-year-old woman from Glenville, was going to walk in the parade with other members of the Glenville Senior Center. They were getting ready to enter the parade at the time.
Suddenly, as the woman was walking with her group, a Glenville Senior Center van driven by a 75-year-old quickly accelerated and struck the woman. She became pinned between the van and a bus in front of them. Several first responders were able to free her and she was quickly transported to the Ellis Hospital.
While there, the victim, identified as Charlene Pomichter, died. Nobody else received injuries in the accident.
The accident remains under investigation at this time.
