Auburn man strikes mailbox, rolls pickup twice on SR 488 in Hopewell

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reports that on Friday at approximately 8:17 am deputies, alongside the Hopewell Fire Department responded to a one car personal injury accident located at 3529 State Route 488 in the Town of Hopewell.

When deputies arrived they found that Brendon Kearns, 19, of Auburn was driving a 1990 Ford pickup in a westerly direction on Route 488 west of County Road 47 when he lost control of his vehicle and struck a mailbox. The vehicle then continued westbound where he overcorrected — crossing the centerline, going off of the roadway near the eastbound shoulder. Kearns then struck a culvert and rolled over twice coming to rest in the front yard of a home.

Kearns was transported by Canandaigua Ambulance to Thompson Hospital where he was treated for complaints of head pain. He was ticketed for failure to keep right and will appear in Hopewell Town Court to answer the charge.
