A Cattaraugus County man was charged over the weekend in connection with a car accident last Wednesday in New Albion that injured a Jamestown man.

Brian J. Snyder, 25, of Cattaraugus County told sheriff’s investigators that he had fallen asleep at the wheel and lost control of his vehicle while traveling north on State Route 353 at 6:06 p.m. Wednesday, causing him to collide with a southbound vehicle operated by Ryan T. Bradley, 33, of Jamestown. The crash caused Bradley’s vehicle to overturn. Bradley was airlifted to Erie County Medical Center for treatment of chest injuries he suffered in the crash.

Snyder, who was not injured, was charged with failure to keep right and is due in New Albion Town Court at later date.
