Pickup driver pleads guilty in 95 mph chase on Kenmore Avenue

A Buffalo man has admitted that he recklessly crashed a pickup into two houses while trying to outrace police last September.

Elijah Turley, 23, of Buffalo, pleaded guilty before State Supreme Court Justice Christopher J. Burns last week to reckless endangerment in the first degree, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.

Turley reportedly was racing on Niagara Falls Boulevard in the early morning of Sept. 29 when Amherst Police tried to stop his vehicle. Turley ignored the police and headed west on Kenmore Avenue at 95 mph. He lost control of the truck, which struck two houses on Kenmore Avenue, causing a woman riding in the truck to be ejected. She reportedly sustained serious injuries.

The judge set sentencing for March 27.
