Nash Road Accident

Nash Road Accident

Wheatfield, NY - On Wednesday May 10, 2017, at approximately 1100 hours, Niagara County Communications received several 911 calls reporting an injury accident on Nash Road in the Town of Wheatfield involving a school bus and another vehicle. Patrol units responded and found the bus on the west shoulder, and the other vehicle in a driveway on Nash Road. The investigation reveals that a northbound vehicle slowly started to drift into the southbound lane, sideswiping the school bus. The vehicle, driven by Donald McGuire Jr, 36, from Ransomville, continued northbound striking a Verizon pole and then coming to rest in a driveway just north of the pole and against a fence. McGuire was transported by ambulance to Mount St Mary's Hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury.
