Rollover crash ends in charges for a Warsaw man.
A crash in Warsaw involving an off-road vehicle has ended in charges for one.
According to the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office 49 year old Bulmaro Perez Perez of Warsaw allegedly sideswiped a passing vehicle as he was southbound on Buck Road operating a side by side off road utility vehicle while another southbound vehicle legally passed.
The crash was reported last Wednesday after Perez Perez is said to have suddenly turned left across the roadway hitting the passing vehicle and ending with his vehicle overturned and the other in a ditch.
Perez Perez who was ejected was treated for a head injury after being flown to ECMC via Mercy Flight where he has since been released.
The other driver was treated and released for minor injuries.
