According to the Ontario County Sheriff's Office, David P. Parish, 42, of Penn Yan was traveling north on Twitchell Road in the Town of Gorham at 9:41 a.m. Sept. 9 when the truck went off the east side of the road and rolled over. Parish was taken by ambulance to Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua and was reported to be in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the sheriff's office.
