The students filed in noisily, as students do, into the bus garage. Once they were situated in their seats, the bus garage bay doors opened. The noisy students quieted at once. Before them three of their friends were involved in a car crash following a night of partying. One of their classmates was injured, one was taken away in handcuffs, and one was dead, her blood trailing down the passenger-side door, pooling onto the roadway.  

Teens in 11th and 12th grade at Letchworth High School were witness to the possible consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs during a DWI crash simulation held at the school Friday afternoon.

Over the loudspeaker the students hear the call of the dispatcher. Within seconds, a siren went off. Within minutes, the first cop cruiser pulled into the parking lot, seconds later, the first ambulance.

“These are the same kids you hang with, play sports with, enjoy life with. In an instant they go from joy and laughter to pain and tears,” said Wyoming County Sheriff Gregory Rudolph. “Imagine you are a victim of this crash…this alcohol-related crash. You experience pain and anxiety caused by the metal and plastic bending and crushing around you as the vehicles collided. You are sitting in a pool of your own blood experiencing pain and suffering that no one should ever have to go through. You are sitting there helpless as you are waiting for help to arrive. Your fear turns to shock.”

As Rudolph was speaking, rescue personnel continued to arrive. The voices of the first responders are calm as they are assessing the situation. Medical responders are now on scene. A multitude of people are working feverishly to stabilize the driver who is still alive and sitting next to her now-dead friend. 

The driver in the other car is looked over for injuries and asked to step out of the vehicle, all the while the sounds of saws and extraction equipment break the seemingly chaotic scene. 

A white sheet is placed over the driver to protect her from the broken glass. Her passenger is covered with a white sheet and left alone as EMS focus their attention on the teen who is still alive.

Since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) began recording alcohol-related statistics in 1982, the number of persons under 21 killed in drunk driving crashes decreased 80 percent. In 1982 there were 5,215 crashes. In 2015 there were 1,021. These fatalities account for 10 percent of the drunk driving fatalities in the United States. 

“When you are talking and you are looking at them (students) there isn’t horseplay going on, they aren’t talking, they are looking past you, paying attention to the scene. You can see it in their eyes that this could happen.”

The crash simulation is made possible by Partners 4 Prevention, School Resource Officer and Wyoming County Sheriff Deputy Ivan Carrasquillo, the NYS Troopers, the Silver Springs and Castile fire departments, Mercy Flight, the Wyoming County Coroner’s Office, District Attorney Donald O’Geen, and the Letchworth Central School SADD Club members and parent volunteers. 

The event, hosted by the Gainesville Fire Department, was intended to highlight the dangers of driving under the influence during the prom season. One third of all alcohol-related teen traffic deaths occur between April and June, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, with vehicle accidents ranking as the top cause of death for those between 12 and 19 years old. In fact, 1,000 young people die annually during prom and graduations celebrations, according to the National Traffic Administration.

Ronald Caryl, a 24-year-old Silver Springs man, was arrested and charged yesterday with receipt of child pornography.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango, Caryl began communicating with a 23-year-old Nashville, Tenn., woman on MeetMe.com, a social networking service. 

Documents state that during the conversation, the two began to discuss Caryl providing the woman with $300 to have sex with her.

Officials say the woman wrote: “just $300 and u do what u want to me,” to which Caryl replied, “do you have a young girl who could join I’ll pay more…you into young girls?"

The woman responded, “as long as they r 18 and older.”

The defendant responded “Ya I meant younger I’ll pay 6000.”

The woman replied, “I can’t put things in her mouth she gets sick she’s disabled.”

The defendant went on to say, “show me your daughter.”

The woman then allegedly sent a picture to the defendant.

Caryl continued to press the woman to send naked pictures of her 1-year-old daughter.

Officials say a MeetMe.com staff member identified the possible endangerment of a minor and illegal content and notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

On Feb. 2, the NCMEC notified the FBI, who then traced the content to an IP address allegedly belonging to Caryl.

Caryl was arrested Tuesday and held pending a detention hearing at 2:30 p.m. Thursday.

Caryl faces a minimum of five years in prison with a maximum of 20 years.

Assisting the FBI in the case included the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department, the Cheektowaga Police Department, and the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office.

Press release:

Sen. Patrick M. Gallivan, (R-C-I, Elma) says $3 million in state funding will help eligible municipalities and rural electricity cooperatives purchase electric vehicles for their municipal use fleets. The program is part of the New York Power Authority’s Municipal Electric-Drive Vehicle Program, which provides financial assistance to facilitate the replacement of less fuel-efficient vehicles.

“This funding will help towns and villages purchase electric and hybrid vehicles that are more fuel efficient and promote a cleaner environment,” Gallivan said. “The state’s financial support allows municipalities to participate in this important initiative and makes the program affordable to more communities.”

In Senate District 59, the villages of Arcade, Castile, Churchville, Silver Springs, and Springville are eligible to participate in the Municipal Electric-Drive Vehicle Program.
Several types of electric and hybrid vehicles are offered for purchase under the program, including passenger cars, pickup trucks, off-road specialty vehicles and heavy-duty utility bucket trucks. 

Municipalities and rural electric cooperatives that currently receive low-cost hydropower from the New York Power Authority are eligible to participate in this program. The funding builds on $5 million previously distributed under this program that has helped put 61 clean vehicles into service in 24 towns and villages across the state.

New York Power Authority's Municipal Electric-Drive Vehicle program works by providing zero-interest financing. The funds made available for the purchase of these vehicles are recovered over the course of three years.

New York Power Authority serves 47 municipal and four rural electric cooperative utility systems around the state, providing them with low-cost hydropower to help meet the electricity needs of their residents and businesses.
