GROVELAND – A Livingston County mother and daughter were hospitalized after a t-bone collision with an SUV trapped them inside their Jeep on Mount Morris Geneseo Road (Rte. 63) on Sunday at about 4 p.m.
According to New York State Trooper Larry LaRose, the driver of the Jeep was attempting to turn left onto Mount Morris Geneseo Road from Abele Road when she pulled out in front of a gray Subaru which was northbound on Mount Morris Geneseo Road.
“Both the driver and her daughter were trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extracted by the [Geneseo] Fire Department,” said Tropper LaRose at the State Trooper barracks in Geneseo after traffic was cleared. “The diver, who is from Piffard, had some head trauma, and appeared to be unconscious for awhile. She was medevacked via Mercyflight. Her daughter, who was in the passenger seat, had some neck pain, chest pain, and a wrist injury. She was taken to the hospital via ambulance. I am waiting for an update from the hospital as we speak.”
The male driver of the Subaru, who is from Avon, was taken to the hospital for minor chest injuries resulting from his seat belt.
Trooper LaRose added that Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies Connor Sanford and Robert Holt assisted on scene with accident reconstruction.
“The driver of the Subaru was not at fault,” said Trooper LaRose. “It looks like the driver of the Jeep just did not see [the Subaru] coming. It appears that the driver of the Subaru did not even have time to strike his brakes.”
Traffic on Mount Morris Road was closed for about two hours as State Police and the Sheriff’s Office investigated on scene.
Firefighters with the Groveland Fire Department and Geneseo Fire and Ambulance responded to the scene, alongside assisting ambulance crews, Mercyflight, New York State Police and the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
