TOWN OF CARROLTON, N.Y. (WIVB) — On Sunday morning, Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s deputies encountered a rare sight in the middle of a Town of Carrolton road — an abandoned mobile home.
Around 7:30 a.m., authorities were responding to a complaint about a truck hauling a trailer with no wheels on it on Route 219.
While they were responding, the abandoned mobile home was found on S. Nine Mile Rd.
Deputies began to investigate, and they say they came to the conclusion that Great Valley resident Brandon Maynard, 32, was the one who drove the diesel truck that towed the home.
According to officials, the axles on the mobile home broke while the truck was going south on 219. This is when Maynard allegedly continued to tow the home onto S. Nine Mile Rd, where the trailer crashed and became unmovable.
Maynard was accompanied by three others who left the scene with him, deputies say. They were identified as Sandra Watson, 47, Todd Clark, 53, and Jacob Clark, 28, all of Great Valley.
All four were charged with second-degree criminal nuisance and operating without a legal escort permit, but Maynard faces additional charges including leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
