According to Sheriff Robert Maciol, members of the Oneida County Sheriff's Office are investigating an incident that occurred in the Town of Marshall on July 3, 2019.

At around 8:40 PM Deputies were investigating a separate incident at "The Boro" when they observed a motor vehicle with no license plates being operated in an erratic manner and failing to maintain a single lane of travel. The vehicle almost struck a building at the corner of Route 12B and Route 315 before traveling south on Route 315. The vehicle then almost struck several Law Enforcement vehicles that were parked in front of "The Boro" and continued south on Route 315. Deputies then observed that the operator was a male juvenile. The juvenile continued south on Route 315, crossing the center line into the northbound lane of travel several more times. The juvenile also went off the roadway several times driving through several farmers fields and at one point struck a mail box. Deputies and members of the New York State Police continued to follow the vehicle in an attempt to stop the juvenile. At one point the juvenile went off the roadway and stopped. The Juvenile then began to drive again and struck an Oneida County Sheriff's Office Patrol Vehicle head on, while the Deputy was inside the patrol vehicle. The juvenile continued south on Route 315 and crossed over into on coming traffic several more times before the juvenile lost control of the vehicle and left the eastern shoulder of the roadway, striking several trees and coming to rest on its side.

It was found that the juvenile was a 14 year old from Sangerfield, and stole the car from a nearby residence. The juvenile and Sheriffs Deputy who's vehicle was struck were not injured. Both were evaluated on scene by members of Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance and released.

At this time the investigation is still ongoing and due to the juveniles age his identity will not be released.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted by members of the New York State Police,​ Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance, Deansboro Fire Department, and Clinton Collision.
