>Fort Erie crash kills man from Mississauga

FORT ERIE, Ont. -- A 31-year-old Mississauga man was pronounced dead early Saturday at the scene of a single-car crash.

Emergency personnel investigating the report of an accident found the man dead at about 5 a.m. at the wheel of his 2002 Acura RSX -- his seat belt still fastened.

According to investigators, the victim apparently was speeding southbound on Rosehill Road when he lost control of his car on the west shoulder of the road. The Acura then turned counterclockwise, crossed into the northbound lane and hit a tree on the east side of the road.

The identity of the victim was being withheld pending notification of his family.

Members of the Niagara Regional Police, the Niagara Emergency Medical Service and the Town of Fort Erie Fire Department were at the scene.

The crash is under investigation by the Collision Reconstruction Unit of Niagara Regional Police. Witnesses should contact the unit at (905) 688-4111, Ext. 5500.


>Motorcyclist accused of fleeing police is charged

A Cattaraugus County motorcyclist faces numerous charges after leading officers from five law enforcement agencies on a chase Friday night through several municipalities.

Allegany village police said the chase began at 9:46 p.m. when Daniel J. Nudd, 22, of South Nine Mile Road, Allegany, fled officers who tried to stop him for popping a wheelie and failing to stop at a red light.

The chase continued into the Town of Allegany, where Cattaraugus County sheriff's deputies took over. Nudd continued into the towns of Hinsdale and Olean before being caught on Interstate 86 in the City of Olean, where he was charged with speeding, officials said.

In the Town of Allegany, Nudd was charged with two counts of speeding, fleeing police, reckless driving, failing to obey a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Hinsdale officers charged him with five counts of speeding, passing on the right, disobeying a stop sign and two counts of reckless driving.

Olean police charged Nudd with speeding, passing on the right and reckless driving.

Nudd was arraigned in the Town of Allegany, sent to Cattaraugus County Jail and is to appear in court the towns of Hinsdale, Olean, and the City of Olean on later dates, officials said.

In addition to Cattaraugus County sheriff's deputies and Allegany village police, state police, Franklinville police and state Department of Environmental Conservation officers assisted.
