A Medina man is hospitalized following an early-morning roll-over crash in the Town of Ridgeway.

Orleans County Sheriff’s deputies say 24-year-old Tyler Heminway apparently lost control his SUV at around 5 this morning on Mill Road. It ran off the roadway, came back and crossed the road onto the other side. The SUV then overturned several times ejecting Heminway before coming to a rest on its side.

He was taken by Mercy Flight to ECMC. He was the only occupant and no one else was injured.

The investigation is ongoing but authorities say both alcohol and excessive speed appear to be factors in the crash. Charges are pending his recovery.

I am tired of reading in all of these news stories that excessive speed and alcohol being the cause. They are assuming without getting all of the facts. Do you think that maybe he fell asleep, woke up and overcorrected? That is what I see when I see the tire tracks. Don't always believe what you read.
