Westville, NY (March 2, 2019) – Police responded to a two-car accident that took place due to one person engaging in unsafe passing. Two people were sent to the hospital with injuries.
At the time, police say that 18-year-old Scott Brown, of Malone, had been driving his GMC Sierra on State Route 37 when he suddenly passed an uninvolved vehicle in a no-passing zone. At the same time, 63-year-old James Rabideau was traveling north in his pickup truck and was attempting to turn into a mobile home park. That’s when Brown tried to pass him.
Brown was unable to avoid striking Rabideau as he made his turn. This caused an accident to occur.
