Volney Car Chase Leads to Crash, Fire

On September 13, 2018 at about 10:08pm, while in the C/O Fulton, an Oswego County Deputy Sheriff observed a 2001 maroon Buick that had been reportedly involved in a larceny from a local convenience store. Subsequently, the Deputy was advised that the same vehicle had been reported stolen earlier in the evening from the C/O Oswego.

The Deputy attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle failed to comply and proceeded east bound on St Rt 3 in the T/O Volney. The driver of the stolen Buick lost control and rear ended an eastbound 2016 gray Ford Focus. The Focus crossed the west bound lane, and came to rest in a ditch on the north side of St Rt 3.

After impact with the Focus, the Buick left the South side of State Route 3 and struck a single family home at 2692 State Route 3. Both the house and the Buick caught fire. The Deputy Sheriff, with assistance from passersby, extracted the four occupants of the Buick.

All four occupants were transported to University Upstate Hospital by Menter Ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. The residents of the home were uninjured and assisted by the Red Cross. The occupants of the Ford Focus were transported to the Oswego Hospital for evaluation. The accident is still under investigation at this time.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Volney Fire Department, City of Fulton Fire Department, Palermo Fire Department, Granby Fire Department and the New York State Police.
