SHELBY – An Alden man is in stable condition at a Buffalo hospital after crashing his car this morning in the Town of Shelby.

The incident occurred shortly before 7 a.m. in the 5200 block of South Gravel Road (Route 63), just south of Fletcher Chapel Road. Jonathon R. Hull, 23, was operating a 1998 Volkswagen sedan and travelling north on Route 63, when he lost control of the vehicle.

The car ran off the east side of the roadway and struck a drainage ditch, causing it to become airborne. After grounding, the car rolled several times before coming to rest on its roof.

Hull, sole occupant, was removed from the car by Shelby firefighters and transported to Erie County Medical Center by Medina Fire Department ambulance.

The incident was investigated by Deputy K.J. Colonna, assisted by Chief Deputy T.L. Drennan. While the investigation continues, it does not appear that either alcohol or drugs were contributing factors.
