Chautauqua County Sheriff's deputies have charged a 35-year-old woman following a one-car accident.
Deputies were dispatched at about 9:30 Friday to Brumagin Road in the Town of Chautauqua for the report of an accident, officials said Saturday. Upon arrival, deputies found a vehicle in a ditch with no occupants.
After an investigation, deputies later charged Jennifer Bennett, of Mount Pleasant Road in Sherman, with third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and moving from a lane unsafely.
Investigators said Bennett did not have permission to use the vehicle she was operating during the time of the accident.
Bennett was issued appearance tickets and is due back in court at a later date.
