Dale’s Briefs – Tuesday, October 11th
Word coming this morning that Terrell Owens was treated for a prescription drug overdose in Los Angeles last week. He’s been released since then but apparently he was taking pain killers while recovering from surgery on a torn ACL. It’s not his first bout with an overdose. He was treated for an overdose in 2006 in what some say was a suicide attempt – but he denies it.
Niagara Falls Blvd. in Wheatfield was shut down for more than an hour early this morning after a driver fell asleep at the wheel and sheared off a pole near Errick Road. The 24-year old driver was taken for treatment of just minor injuries.
A crash in Marilla sent two vehicles into a corner house yesterday morning. One of the cars began to burn and it was the work of a sheriff’s deputy and a nearby resident who pulled one of the drivers from the burning car. 19-year old Kaitlin Boyce was ticketed for failing to stop at a stop sign at Eastwood and Bullis Roads.
The body of a young man in his late teens to early 20’s was found around noontime yesterday along the banks of Cayuga Creek near Harlem and Clinton at the West Seneca – Cheektowaga border. The description matches a person missing since Friday in Depew. Police are calling the death suspicious.
Niagara Parks Police are looking to identify the body of a woman found in the lower Niagara River yesterday morning near the whirlpool. One of the whirlpool jet boats helped recover the body.
