MAYVILLE, NY (WNY News Now) – A Jamestown resident accused of causing two separate fatal crashes in Chautauqua County will await trial behind bars.

On Thursday, Chautauqua County District Attorney Jason Schmidt announced Randall Rolison was remanded to county jail after receiving treatment at UPMC Hamot Medical Center following the second of two fatal crashes he’s accused of causing.

“(He) is now behind bars in the Chautauqua County Jail where he awaits trial on two separate felony indictments, the most notable of which arises from the December 31, 2021 death of 15 year old Lexy Hughan whom Mr. Rolison struck and killed while operating a tractor trailer,” DA Schmidt said in a statement.

The DA previously pushed for his bail to be revoked in connection with the first fatal hit-and-run.

“He was discharged earlier this afternoon from UPMC Hamot Medical Center where he had been receiving medical treatment for the injuries he sustained in another fatal motor vehicle accident caused by Mr. Rolison, this one occurring on December 5th, which took the life of Linda Kraemer and seriously injured Mrs. Kraemer’s husband Gary,” continued Schmidt. “Immediately following that fatal motor vehicle accident, I and my office applied to County Court to revoke Mr. Rolison’s bail.”

An arrest warrant was then issued with law enforcement monitoring Rolison’s progress at UPMC Hamot so that he could be taken into custody following his discharge .

“We are currently preparing for trial on the two sets of pending charges against Mr. Rolison and will be moving forward with a new set of charges arising from the December 5th accident,” continued Schmidt.
