ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — A Wellsboro man has been sentenced for causing a fatal crash. That crash happened in June of 2018, taking the life of 52-year-old Robert Bolt of Millerton. Ryan Austin was sentenced to incarceration in the Bradford correctional facility for 11 months, which will be followed by 24 months of probation. He will also lose his driver’s license for 24 months.

We are learning the Chemung County health department and New York State Department of Health are investigating a case of legionella at the Chemung County Nursing Facility.

The health department says the case is not related to the eleven other cases in the county this year. There is currently no link to the prior patients and environmental samples taken earlier this year, and the results of several other samples are still pending.
