Buffalo, NY – Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the Crash Investigation Unit arrested the operator of an additional vehicle involved in a fatal crash on April 4, 2016 on Center Road in the Town of Colden.


After a lengthy investigation, Deputies charged the minor female operator of a vehicle involved in the incident that killed Chauncy Kloiber.  Working closely with the District Attorney’s Office, Deputies charged that driver with a felony count of second-degree criminally negligent homicide.


Due to the age of the defendant the sheriff’s office is not releasing her name.  The defendant is at the Erie County Holding Center pending her arraignment.


The sheriff’s Crash Investigation Unit believes speed was a factor in the incident.
