On May 21, 2010, the Democrat & Chronicle reported Man pleads not guilty in fatal crash in March about Richard T. Woods, 29, who displayed signs of consciousness of guilt concerning the March 16, 2010, accident.
He apparently told police that he thought he had the right of way before he turned into the path of the oncoming motorcycle operated by Raymond Stevens, 38, of Rochester, at the intersection of Cleveland and Putnam Streets. Then Woods, who also admitted to police that he'd been drinking before the accident, drove away from the accident scene... although he had suffered minor injuries from the crash.
Mr. Woods would seem to be appropriately charged with first-degree vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated, both felonies. I would add the charge of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident also.
