Driver sentenced for high-speed crash

Elijah Turley, 23, of Buffalo, has been sentenced by State Supreme Court Justice Christopher J. Burns to an indeterminate sentence of two to four years following a Kenmore Avenue car crash, according to Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn.

In the early morning hours of Sept. 29, 2017, Turley, who was operating a pickup, refused to stop and proceeded west on Kenmore Avenue at a rate of 99 mph in a 35-mph zone for more than three miles, according to police.

He lost control of the pickup and struck two houses on Kenmore Avenue, causing significant damage. His female passenger was ejected from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries, police said.

Turley, a second felony offender, pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment in the first degree in February.
