Three arrested after their truck hits pole

WILSON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Three people have been charged with an assortment of crimes after a truck they were riding in struck a pole at the intersection of Wilson-Cambria and German Roads in the Town of Wilson.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies say a pickup-truck, driven by 25-year-old Patricia Davis of Wilson, was traveling north on Wilson-Cambria Road when the vehicle crossed over the southbound lane, left the road and struck a power pole. The truck then continued north and struck a culvert before finally coming to a stop.

Police say Davis and her passenger, 44-year-old Ralph Gillon of Niagara Falls, gave conflicting stories about how the accident happened and that Davis initially gave a false name to officers.

It was later revealed that a third passenger, 24-year-old Kelly Jarvis, had fled the scene of the accident before deputies arrived. Jarvis was then located in a yard a half mile from the crash scene.

After further investigation deputies arrested the trio. Davis was charged with DWAI, DWI, false impersonation, criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument, failure to keep right and a violation of the open container law.

Gillon was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Jarvis was charged with obstruction of a government administration, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument. Jarvis was detained on a previous warrant from Niagara Falls.

No one was injured in the accident and all three were taken to the Niagara County Jail on $500 bail.
