A two car accident in New Hartford sent five people to the hospital after the two cars hit head-on.  It happened around 1:30 p.m. Friday afternoon on Middle Settlement Road, near the Hartford insurance Company.  According to police: 18-year-old Olin Carlsen, of Waterville, took his eyes off the road for just a moment, and his car drifted into the on-coming traffic.  It then slammed into a car driven by 55-year-old Judith Welch, of Clinton.

Both drivers were taken to local hospitals, including all passengers.  The extent of injuries varied from minor to severe.  Carlsen was ticketed for failure to keep right.
