Broome County Trial Begins in 2011 Chenango River Crash

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The trial is underway for the driver of a sport utility vehicle that plunged into the Chenango River in the Town of Fenton in 2011, killing three passengers.

Jaclyn Wesley is charged with three counts of vehicular manslaughter in connection with the crash off Interstate 88 near Port Crane in May of 2011 that left the women’s friends inside the vehicle dead.

The bodies of 25 year old Robert Moorehead, 39 year old Carri Michalski and 45 year old Robert Marshall were pulled from the river while Westley managed to make it to shore and was found, wet by the side of the highway, by a passing motorist.

The beginning testimony has involved the question of alcohol involvement, with the first officer on the scene telling a Broome County jury that he detected the smell of alcohol when he encountered Wesley and an empty liquor bottle and beer cans were found in the vehicle once the SUV was recovered from the river.  Another witnesses had said the group had been at a Port Crane inn earlier that night.

Wesley remains free on her own recognizance during the trial.
