Perry – On September 8, 2023 Troopers responded to a personal injury accident at 1982 Silver Lake Rd in the town of Perry. Harold W. Ellis, 46, was behind the wheel of the vehicle involved in the accident and reported injuries to himself and his passenger.
During their interview with Ellis, Troopers detected a potent odor of alcohol on his breath and noticed watery, bloodshot eyes.
