GERRY – A Sinclairville man was taken to WCA Hospital following a single-car accident Thursday.

Chautauqua County Sheriff’s deputies say Edward J. Nickerson, 17, of 6593 Charlotte Center Road, Sinclairville, was traveling east when he fell asleep at the wheel and rolled his truck several times before it came to rest in the westbound lane of Gerry-Ellington Road.

Nickerson was charged with failure to keep right and suffered minor injuries in the crash.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Gerry Volunteer Fire Department at the scene.
