The Batavia boy critically injured in a single vehicle accident in the Town of Alabama Saturday has died.
Shawn Wolcott was 10 years old.
Shawn lived on Maple Street with his father, who was also injured in the accident. Shawn Wolcott Sr. told investigators that his car jerked to the right on Ledge Road, causing it to go off the roadway and strike a utility pole. The car hit the pole on its side, causing the rear half of the car to shear off.
Wolcott Sr. was treated and released for his injuries from ECMC. Shawn was sitting in the rear passenger seat.
Chief Deputy Gordon Dibble says the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Shawn was taken by Mercy Flight to Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo after the accident. The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office received notification of his death late yesterday.
