Teen suffers minor injuries in car rollover accident

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - A one-car accident in the Town of Lee left a teen with minor injuries.

According to the Oneida County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to Capron Road in the Town of Lee around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Jonathon Culjak, 17, was lying outside his 1994 Honda Civic when deputies arrived. After an investigation, it was determined Culjak lost control of the car while northbound on Capron Road. His car struck a mailbox, continued through the yard and flipped, ejecting Culjak. The car continued on, hit a house and a kerosene tank, which leaked fluid into the yard. DEC officers were called to help with the kerosene spill.

Culjak was transported by ambulance to St. Elizabeth's Hospital for minor injuries. He was issued three traffic citations.

The Lee Center Fire Department assisted deputies.
