Monroe County legislator calls for transparency in pedestrian-involved crashes

Local News

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — County Legislator Rachel Barnhart (D-21) will hold a press conference Monday to call for greater transparency in crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists.

Barnhart is calling for law enforcement to do the following:

  • Release the names of victims and drivers
  • Release details about the crash and how it happened
  • Discuss the reason for filing or not filing charges against the drivers

This stems from a recent pedestrian crash on Parsells Avenue in Rochester.

Rumors swirled online that the driver in the crash was an elected official, but Rochester police announced Friday that was not the case.
