A Panama man is facing charges after a three-vehicle crash on Route 474, in North Harmony, Friday night. The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office says 30-year-old Lawrence T. Linkous III was driving when he lost control of his vehicle and crossed into oncoming traffic.

Linkous’ vehicle struck a vehicle driven by 20-year-old Jocelyn E. Bensink, of Clymer, and then a truck driven by 39-year-old Charles R. Rugg, of Panama.

Bensink was taken to an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Rugg was not injured. Linkous was evaluated at the scene but declined treatment.

Linkous is charged with speed not reasonable and prudent, and failure to keep right.
