A driver's alleged attempt to avoid a traffic control device at Route 33 and Batavia Stafford Townline Road drew the attention of a trooper this morning and led to a short pursuit that ended when the car struck a mobile home.
The driver of the car and her passenger where both arrested.
Cailee A. Neiss, 19, of Byron, was charged with several traffic violations including reckless driving and avoiding a traffic control device.
Nickolas Sutherland, 23, of Byron, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, 7th, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Neiss allegedly drove through the Arrowmart parking lot in an effort to avoid the stoplight at the intersection.
According to State Police, "the operator, upon seeing the flashing lights of the patrol car, attempted to avoid being stopped, drove recklessly turned onto Gaslite Lane and subsequently struck a mobile home causing minor damage."
Nobody was home at the time and there were no injuries reported in the accident.
Neiss was issued a summons; Sutherland was issued an appearance ticket.
