post by Howard B. Owens in accident, elba

A driver involved in a single-vehicle accident at 11:28 p.m. Saturday on Route 262, Elba, has been charged with driving while ability impaired by drugs.

Joseph Paul Pratt, 20, of Church Street, Le Roy, was also charged with failure to keep right. 

Pratt was driving a 2010 Chevy pickup owned by another person eastbound on Route 262. The truck reportedly crossed into the westbound lane and went off the north shoulder of the road. It struck a guy wire for a utility pole and continued through a patch of trees and hedges, coming to rest in a field.  

Deputy Chris Parker reports that Pratt said he hit a patch of black ice.

The investigation showed, Parker wrote in the report, that Pratt's vehicle traveled in a straight line through a curve in the roadway.
