Infant escapes uninjured after truck rollover in Boonville

BOONVILLE, N.Y. (WKTV) - Authorities say two adults suffered minor injuries and an infant escaped uninjured after a motor vehicle accident in Boonville on Wednesday.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office states that on Wednesday, March 20 at around 1:05 p.m., Timothy J. LaQuay, 17, of Boonville was operating a 2005 Ford pickup truck south on Route 46 in Boonville, when he struck a snow drift in the roadway. Authorities say LaQuay lost control of the vehicle, spinning 180 degrees and exiting the east side of the roadway.

When LaQuay's vehicle tires caught the earth embankment, the vehicle rolled over and struck a utility support pole, officials with the Sheriff's Office stated.

LaQuay's sister, Kristal L. LaQuay, 20, and her 6 month old daughter, also of Boonville, were passengers in the vehicle. Both Timothy and Kristal suffered minor abrasions on their hands but the 6 month old baby, who was properly restrained in an infant child seat, appeared to be uninjured, authorities said.

The Boonville Fire Department responded to the scene and assisted. Kristal LaQuay and her daughter were transported by Boonville Ambulance to Rome Hospital for further evaluation.

No tickets were issued.
