MAYVILLE – An 18-year-old Bemus Point man and a 23-year-old Stockton man were taken to Westfield Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in a head-on crash on Bayview Road in the Town of Ellery about 7:20 a.m. today, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Zachery Arnold, 18, was driving west on Bayview when he reportedly fell asleep at the week and crashed head-on into the eastbound car of Todd Diate, 23. Arnold has been issued a traffic ticket for failure to keep right, and he faces Ellery Town Court proceedings in several weeks, deputies said.

Neither driver’s injuries were reported to be life-threatening, according to investigators.
