Theresa, NY – Injurious Collision in Jefferson County Under Investigation
Theresa, NY (June 28, 2019) – A two-vehicle accident that took place at approximately 3:45 p.m. on Friday, June 28th, is currently under investigation by police. The collision took place at the intersection of Route 37 and Route 411 in the town of Theresa, between a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu and a 2012 Nissan Rogue, according to authorities.
Investigators stated that the operator of the Malibu, identified as 20-year-old Eugene M. Morehouse, of Cheektowaga, was heading east along Route 411 when he stopped at the intersection.
