Hanover, NY – On September 29, 2022, at approximately 3:15 p.m., State Police were dispatched to a report of a pedestrian struck by a tractor trailer on I-90 in the town of Hanover, Chautauqua County.
A preliminary investigation at the scene determined that Keila M. Rosado, 21, of Buffalo, NY, was operating a Medicaid taxi van westbound, when a passenger in the van became irate. Once Rosado pulled the van over onto the right shoulder of the roadway, the passenger exited the van from the rear driver’s side and jumped into the path of a 2022 Kenworth tractor trailer being driven by Milijan Teodosic, 47, of Franklin, WI. The passenger of the van, Hector Colon Rodriguez, 48, of Jamestown, NY, was air lifted to Erie County Medical Center for serious, non-life-threatening injuries where he is currently listed in stable condition.
