GENESEO – A 9th grader passed away on Rte. 39 (Avon Geneseo Road) in an accident involving an SUV.
Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty says that the vehicle was southbound on Avon Geneseo Road when the 14-year-old girl, who was running with a friend, went into the roadway.
“The basic thing that I want to express right now is that we are working with the family and families involved and they need more time to notify family members and so I appreciate Sheriff Dougherty…we are not going to release particulars right now,” said Geneseo Central Schools Superintendent Tim Hayes. “When the time is right, we will absolutely do that.”
Thursday was the second day of school for Geneseo Central School.
Dougherty said that no foul play is expected.
“That person [the driver] is being spoken to as they would in any other investigation like this,” said Dougherty.
The Sheriff’s Office is reconstructing and investigating the accident. Dougherty said that it is unclear what caused the girl to enter the roadway.
Avon Geneseo Road is expected to be closed for several hours.
