ALBION – This pickup truck flipped over when it was struck this morning by another driver who allegedly ran the Stop Sign at the intersection of Liberty and West State streets in Albion.

The driver of the truck and his passenger were fine, although one may have sustained a minor head injury, Police Chief Roland Nenni said.

Alberto Mendoza-Gonzalez, 42, of Marshall Road, Medina, was the driver of the other vehicle that went through the Stop Sign. He was issued vehicle and traffic violations for failure to stop, speed not reasonable, failure to yield, and driving without a New York State license. The Border Patrol was called due to Mendoza-Gonzalez’s questionable immigration statue, Nenni said.

The police chief said this intersection has been the scene of many accidents over the years.
