A 12-year-old girl was stuck by a car along the Torrey Hill Road in the Wyoming County Town of Java yesterday. The young girl was helping her father with yard work near the roadway when she was struck by the car.

Wyoming County Sheriff’s Deputies say the driver of the other car, 78-year-old Eleanor Gadomski of Arcade, wasn’t charged. They believe the afternoon sun may have been a factor.

Again, that truck show starts tomorrow at 11am at the Genesee County Fairgrounds. It continues until 4:00 pm. All donations benefit Camp Good Days.
