An 82-year-old Williamsville man was ticketed for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle after his vehicle collided with a Depew Police cruiser on Transit Road on an emergency call about 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Police Officer Brian Gummel’s patrol vehicle was struck by the car of Raymond Simmons on Transit at French Road. Simmons said he did not see or hear the police vehicle.

Though apparently suffering an arm cut in the crash, Simmons refused medical treatment. Gummel, who had a regular day off Wednesday, was taken to Sisters Hospital for a checkup after the crash but was discharged after treatment.

The crash occurred just outside the parking lot of a 7-Eleven Store at the intersection.
