Man Injured In Crash, Home Damaged
 
Greece police say a man was seriously injured in a crash Tuesday afternoon near Fetzner Road.

Investigators say they saw a man they were interested in speaking with and as they attempted to stop him, he sped up and bumped a patrol car with his vehicle. Police say he then blew through a stop sign at New Price Lane and Fetzner Road where he was hit by a flatbed tractor-trailer. The flatbed truck ended driving through a home nearby.

The driver of the car was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the flatbed refused treatment. (WHEC-TV)

Citizens Detain Robbery Suspect For Arrest
 

A 42-year-old Greece man is facing charges after an incident at the A-Plus store on Dewey Avenue.

Police say they were called to A-Plus just before 11 a.m. Monday for the report of a robbery. When officers arrived, citizens had already detained the suspect, Thomas Petix. He was taken into police custody without incident.

Petix is charged with attempted robbery and attempted grand larceny after police say he struggled with store staff as they tried to stop him from stealing money from the cash drawer.

Police Chief Todd Baxter states “This arrest is an example of the success we can have when citizens partner with the Greece Police Department to rid our streets of criminals. There is a clear message to the lawbreaker here; this community will not tolerate crime.” (WHEC-TV)

Was the Tractor trailer badly damaged?

Did GPD do their usual DOT check to see how many tickets they could write the trucker?

Instead of avoiding Greece, why not just keep your truck up to the legal standards? I'll say as a Greece resident, if your truck is sub-par, then please, DO keep your unsafe vehicle out of our town and away from us.

It has nothing to do with the condition of the equipment, it's lost hours waiting for Officer helpful to inspect the truck.
