Sheriff's Office releases names in Sunday night's ATV accident in Pembroke

post by Billie Owens in accidents, pembroke

The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office has released the names of those involved in an ATV crash that sent four to the hospital late Sunday night.

Just after 11 p.m. Sunday, two ATVs – each carrying a passenger -- collided on Route 5 in the Town of Pembroke. Deputies say the two ATVs were riding eastbound, side-by-side, near Cleveland Road when the collision occurred, ejecting all four riders.

The driver of the first ATV, 26-year-old Charles Chatley, of Kilian Road, Pembroke, allegedly crashed into the second ATV, causing his vehicle to flip. He is the second assistant chief of the East Pembroke Fire Department.

His passenger, 26-year-old Kristina Rumble, was taken to ECMC by Mercy Flight. 

The driver of the second ATV was 35-year-old Stephen Smelski, who is East Pembroke fire's first assistant chief and a dispatcher for Genesee County Emergency Dispatch Center. Contrary to other reports, he was NOT transported by Mercy Flight.

Stephen Smelski's passenger, 37-year-old Brenda Smelski, and Chatley were taken to ECMC by ambulance.

The Sheriff’s Office says charges are pending.

CORRECTION: The story changed to correct passenger names.
