More Details Released In Hit-And-Run Involving Motorcyclist

FREWSBURG — Police have released more details of the SUV involved in a hit-and-run with a motorcyclist earlier this week.

The Carroll Police Department said the truck involved in Tuesday’s incident at the intersection of Route 62 and Ivory Road near Frewsburg was likely a black GMC Yukon Denali, 2007 to 2014 model, with gold New York plates.

The vehicle also had chrome accents to its door handles, running board and luggage rack.

Police said the GMC, believed to be driven by a white female, turned into the path of a motorcyclist around.

The operator of the motorcycle, Paul M. Fardink, suffered minor abrasions and an ankle injury but did not require medical attention at the scene.

“The black GMC suburban slowed but subsequently left the scene of the accident,” Carroll police said Tuesday.

The SUV also reportedly had the letters “GMC” printed on the lower right corner of the rear windshield in addition to low-profile tires.

Anyone with information regarding the hit-and-run is asked to call Carroll police at 490-8419.

Police were assisted Tuesday by the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office and the New York State Police.
