CLARENDON – An Albion man was sent to Orleans County Jail this afternoon following the investigation of an over-night crash in which the vehicle he was operating struck a building.

The incident was reported at about 6 this morning in the town of Clarendon at 15670 Mansfield Rd. Sometime during the night, a 2010 Hummer was travelling south on Hindsburg Road, towards the T-intersection with Mansfield Road.

Brandon D. Kirby, 26, was driving the vehicle. He crossed Mansfield Road, onto private property and struck the building owned by Acme Powerwashing Inc., of Holley. The operator fled the scene on foot at that time. The incident was reported after being discovered by an employee of the business.

Kirby, the sole occupant of the vehicle, was subsequently located approximately four hours later. He was charged with Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 2nd Degree, Operating a Vehicle Without an Ignition Inter-Lock Device, Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Incident, and Failure to Stop for a Stop Sign.

Kirby appeared before Town of Clarendon Justice Richard Kemp and was committed to the county jail in lieu of $500 cash bail. A Parole Detainer was also placed against him.

The incident was investigated by Deputy J.A. DeFilipps and the arrest was handled by Deputy M.C. Mele. Investigator K.M. Strickland Jr. also assisted with the investigation, as did the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
