GENESEO – A two-car accident at the Geneseo and Mount Morris Road intersection on Tuesday at about 12:30 p.m. sent an elderly driver to the hospital with a head injury and neck brace, and sent three others, including a baby girl, to Noyes Hospital to be checked over. Traffic had to be directed by Geneseo Police and firefighters one lane at a time as first responders checked over the victims.
State Trooper Josh Bacon said on scene said that though she sustained a nasty head wound from the impact of the collision, the elderly driver looked to be in stable condition. She was the sole occupant of her vehicle, and two adult females and one female infant were in the other car.
“I came up on the accident on my way to Wegmans,” said retired Sheriff’s Deputy David Provo, who pulled over to see how he could help. “I didn’t expect that on my way to pick up some pies!”
The driver’s side of the injured driver’s car was crushed in the collision, and the front of the driver’s side of the other vehicle also sustained severe damage. Both cars were able to be driven away from the scene and loaded onto collision repair vehicles.
Trooper Bacon added the she was not bleeding and did not appear to have sustained any spinal or head injuries looking like whiplash.
Assisting on scene were Geneseo Fire and EMS, Livingston County EMS, State Police, and Livingston County Sheriff Deputies.
