Additional charges have been placed against that Perry woman in connection with the fatal car crash in the Wyoming County town of Gainesville a week ago. 20-year-old Erin Tetreault of Callahan Street in Perry has now been charged with Aggravated Vehicular Homicide and Aggravated Vehicular Assault, both felonies. She was driving the car that left the Miller Road and slammed into a tree. 20-year-old Marissa Ozzimo from Perry was killed in the crash. Tetreault had originally been charged with DWI and with driving with an open container in the car, along with speeding and failure to keep right. Tetreault is in the Wyoming County Jail with bail set at $25,000. Two other passengers in the car are still hospitalized. Investigators ruled that alcohol and excessive speed played a major role in the accident.
Batavia Firemen made quick work of a fire in a two story, wood frame home at 224 East Avenue in Batavia last evening. Upon arrival, flames were found in the kitchen and extended into the dining room. The blaze was quickly extinguished. The home is owned by Jeffrey Oshlag and the residents were not home at the time of the fire. The cause has been ruled accidental. Firemen rescued a cat, which was taken to the veterinarian and is expected to recover. There were no injuries.
From WBTA’s Eye on Government:

Andrew Cuomo taking some shots back at Carl Paladino today down in White Plains, New York.
Not even 24 hours after Paladino attacked Cuomo as part of a 3-minute television ad, Cuomo publicly took issue with the Republican candidate’s stances – like abortion. Cuomo today was endorsed by Planned Parenthood and the Coalition for Legal Abortion. He again called Paladino “extreme” during the rally.
Cuomo says because of Paladino’s antics, the race is swinging away from the real issues. The latest poll shows Cuomo with a nearly 20-point lead over Paladino.
