TOWN OF LERAY, New York (WWNY) - Distracted driving is getting the blame for a crash on Route 283 in the town of LeRay.
Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies said 44-year-old Astro Johnson of Watertown went off the road and struck a utility pole at around 1:30 p.m.
He was unhurt. Deputies issued Johnson a traffic ticket.
Route 283 was closed between Porter and LaFave roads after the crash so National Grid crews could repair the utility pole and a tow truck could remove the wreckage.
