Local News

A Victor man led deputies on a chase that ended with him crashing into a tree in front of his own house, according to the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy attempted to pull over a car driven by 53-year-old Everett Zuhlsdorf on Cork Road in Victor early Tuesday morning. Zuhlsdorf allegedly ignored the deputy’s emergency lights and made it to his home on Dryer Road. That’s when Zuhlsdorf failed to negotiate a slight turn and crashed into a tree on the edge of his driveway.

There were two other men in the car at the time, 40-year-old Thomas Earle and 47-year-old William Guest. Zuhlsdorf and Earle were taken to the hospital and released. 

Deputies say they found crack cocaine, morphine, and marijuana on Zuhlsdorf. He was arrested and charged with driving while ability impaired by drugs, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, unlawful fleeing, and possession of a controlled substance, along with 10 other traffic violations.

Deputies say they also found crack cocaine on Guest and Earle. They were charged with possession of a controlled substance.
