A LeRoy man has died in a one-car accident in Wyoming County.
25-year-old Phillip B. Ellinwood was killed yesterday morning at about 7:23am, when his car ran off Wethersfield Road in the Town of Wethersfield and struck a tree. Ellinwood apparently became pinned in his vehicle and had to be extricated by rescue workers. He was transported to Wyoming County Community Hospital in Warsaw, where he later died as a result of injuries.
Wyoming County Sheriff's Deputies tells us that Ellinwood had left his girlfriend's home in the Town of Arcade and was heading to work in LeRoy. He was reportedly passing another vehicle in the eastbound lane when the accident occurred.
Deputies say neither alcohol nor speed appeared to be factors in the accident.
