Police: No Criminal Charges In Trolley-Pedestrian Accident

OSWEGO, NY – The City of Oswego Police Department, after consultation with the New York State Department of Transportation and the Oswego County District Attorney’s Office, has concluded the motor vehicle accident investigation report for the A-Bus trolley versus pedestrian accident that occurred on May 9 in the area of West Bridge Street at West Seneca Street.

The investigation determined that the operator of the trolley bus was traveling westbound on West Seneca Street and did make an improper left turn into an unmarked one-way turning spur, said spur intended for westbound West Bridge Street traffic to travel eastbound on West Seneca Street, and while the trolley bus was attempting to enter eastbound West Bridge Street traffic did strike two pedestrians that were crossing West Bridge Street, apparently diagonally from north to south, outside of a crosswalk.

No criminal charges are pending.
