Power out in Holley after car accident
Press release, Orleans County Sheriff Scott Hess
HOLLEY – A power outage affecting parts of eastern Orleans County and the Village of Holley is likely the result of a traffic crash in the Town of Murray.
The incident occurred at about 8 a.m., in the 3500 block of Fancher Road. Richard J. Breslawski, 23, of Hamlin was operating an 18-wheel tractor-trailer truck and was exiting westbound Route 31 onto northbound Fancher Rd., when he lost control of the vehicle. The truck jack-knifed, striking several parked cars at A&M Transmission Service at 3581 Fancher Rd., before shearing off a National Grid utility pole.
Breslawski, the sole occupant, was not injured. The truck is owned by Charles Breslawski Farms, also located in Hamlin. There was no cargo on-board at the time of the incident.
Unsafe speed is a probable factor in the crash, investigated by Deputies A.L. Jenks & M.C. Mele. Also assisting at the scene are firefighters from the Fancher-Hulberton-Murray and the Holley Fire Departments. That section of Fancher Road remains closed to traffic.
