Canandaigua man flees accident scene, charged with DWI after being located

Deputies arrested a 45-year-old Canandaigua man following an accident on Route 5 in Hopewell early-Wednesday morning.

Around 2:08 a.m. deputies were called to a single-car property damage crash on Route 5. They say the operator of the vehicle, identified as Edward W. Laranjo, 45, of Canandaigua fled the scene, and was located a few hundred feet from the accident.

Deputies say he was hiding. Laranjo was charged with driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident, and failure to keep right.

He refused to submit to a chemical test, as well.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
