Fight between married couple leads to property damage crash


ELLICOTT, N.Y. (WIVB) – State Police say a married couple fighting in their car hit some mailboxes and drove away.

Troopers were called to Denslow Avenue in the Town of Ellicott on Saturday to investigate the property damage. Searching the area led police to Rt. 430, where they found the vehicle allegedly involved in the accident had run out of gas.

Police say Randy and Andi Rasmussen had been fighting inside their car, which caused the accident. The couple’s 5-year-old child was in the vehicle at the time.

Both are charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Randy was additionally charged with seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

The Rasmussens are due back in court at a later date. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
