KIANTONE, N.Y. (WIVB) – A driver from Jamestown admitted to falling asleep at the wheel while driving Tuesday morning after narrowly missing a swimming pool display and crashing into a play set in the same yard.
The driver, David A. Philbrick, 42, of Jamestown, was charged with failure to keep right.
The crash occurred on Foote Avenue Ext. An investigation into the crash showed that the vehicle being operated by Philbrick left the roadway and crashed into a large billboard sign. The vehicle then overturned four to six times before traveling approximately 150 yards through several fields, hitting shrubs and small trees. The vehicle then narrowly missed a swimming pool display set up in the Designer Pools parking lot and crashed into a play set in the same parking lot.
The operator and a female passenger, 41, were both taken to WCA Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
