Michael J. Casciani, 20 , of West Swamp Road, Penn Yan was operating a pickup truck on State Route 364 near Briggs Road when he attempted to light a cigarette while rounding a curve.  The vehicle exited onto the shoulder of the road then fishtailed across the west bound lane and entered a ditch.  The vehicle then continued forward and struck a driveway culvert and became airborne. It finally rested on the drive’s side.  Yates County Deputy Ken Kamholtz, Medic 55 , Penn Yan Ambulance responded to the scene.  Casciani received treatment at the scene, but refused transport to the hospital.  The vehicle was demolished with contents strewn all over.  No tickets were issued.
