>Rushford man admits vehicular manslaughter

BELMONT -- A Rushford man will serve six months in Allegany County Jail after a guilty plea to second-degree vehicular manslaughter.

Toby J. Taylor, 20, also was assessed a $270 surcharge and placed on probation for five years by Allegany County Judge James E. Euken.

District Attorney Terrence M. Parker said Taylor was drunk and driving recklessly Nov. 12 in Rushford, causing the death of James D. Bliss. Taylor also had been charged with driving while intoxicated, but his manslaughter plea cleared that charge, Parker said.
