Fredonia teen charged with speeding in rollover accident

MAYVILLE – A 17-year-old Fredonia teenager was charged Tuesday by State Police with unsafe speed following an investigation of a rollover accident on State Route 83 in the Town of Arkwright on Saturday.

John B. Murphy was driving west at an unsafe speed on an icy snow-covered roadway when he lost control of his vehicle and overturned before coming to rest in the westbound lane, investigators said. Because he was wearing a seatbelt he suffered only minor head cuts and his family took him to Brooks Memorial Hospital for treatment. He faces proceedings Feb. 13 in Arkwright Town Court.
