The Olean Times Herald reports on a different, unrelated incident. A 25-year-old Arcade man was arrested Thursday in connection with a two-vehicle accident that occurred over a year ago, on July 21, 2019, in Yorkshire. The New York State Police reports he has been charged with vehicular manslaughter, operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs, and operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level of .08 or greater. The original accident claimed the life of one person and hospitalized a second individual.
