October 10, 2015
On Tuesday, (10/6), around 8:45p.m, Irene Hughes, age 38, of Marion, was driving a 1999 Toyota Corolla eastbound on Route 441 in the Town of Penfield. While traveling on Route 441 between Fellows and Harris Roads, Hughes went off the roadway, struck a telephone pole, struck a large rock, went airborne, and struck a tree.  The vehicle came to rest upside down on its roof. 
All three occupants were removed from the vehicle and transported to Strong Memorial Hospital. Hughes sustained very minor injuries and was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital where she was treated and released. Irene's two daughters were in the vehicle at the time of the crash - 15-year-old Kali Pearse and 7-year-old Betsy Ross. Kali sustained lacerations. Betsy sustained serious injuries and was unresponsive at the scene. She remains in guarded condition.
Hughes was found to be intoxicated.  She was arraigned early Wednesday morning in East Rochester Town Court and charged with two counts of felony DWI (Leandra's Law), two counts of first degree Vehicular Assault and two counts of Child Endangerment, Hughes was remanded to the Monroe County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond.
