VIENNA – Two people were hospitalized following a two-car crash in the town of Vienna on Sunday, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, deputies responded to the crash at Fish Creek Landing in the town of Vienna, at the intersection of Old Route 49.
Deputies say 32-year-old Meghan Black of Oriskany was driving a 2004 Cadillac SUV westbound on Old Route 49 when she lost control of the vehicle because of unsafe speed and slippery road conditions. Her vehicle then spun sideway across both lanes of traffic, and was struck by a 2011 Mazda sedan driven by 25-year-old Krystal Rice of Blossvale.
Rice’s vehicle struck the rear passenger side of Black’s Cadillac, causing Black's vehicle to spin and leave the south shoulder of the roadway into the snow.
Black and her passenger, a child, were uninjured in the crash. Rice and her passenger, 27-year-old Christopher Fisk of Blossvale, were taken to Oneida Healthcare to be treated for minor injuries.
Deputies say Black was issued citations returnable to the Town of Vienna Court at a later date.
The Vienna Fire Department assisted the Sheriff’s Office at the scene.
