18-Year-Old Girl Killed in Depew Accident | News
DEPEW, NY - Police in Depew are investigating a fatal pedestrian accident that killed a 18-year-old girl.
The accident happened on Broadway at Kokomo Avenue just after 7am Monday morning.
Investgators say Ashley Creighton was waiting for a bus on the north side of Broadway when an eastbound car swerved crossing two lanes of traffic, striking her.
The car then swerved back across three lanes and hit Penora's Pizza.
The driver, a 35-year-old man from Lancaster, was not hurt, but taken to ECMC for blood work. However, at this time, investigators do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved. They say the driver had just finished working an overnight shift at his job when the accident happened and may have fallen asleep.
A section of Broadway was closed for a few hours while police investigated the accident.
