ROME, N.Y. – A woman was sent to the hospital following a three-car crash on Rome-Westmoreland Road Tuesday afternoon.
According to Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, 71-year-old Thomas Chadwick, of Little Falls, was driving a white Chevy pickup truck east on Lamphear Road around 2:15 p.m., when he failed to stop at a red light at the intersection with Rome-Westmoreland Road.
Deputies say Chadwick drove through the intersection, and the truck’s passenger side collided with the driver side of a black Chrysler van, driven by 36-year-old Heather Miner, of Rome.
Both the truck and the van continued into the westbound lane, hitting a grey Subaru sedan driven by John Kessler, 63, of Rome, while he was stopped in the right turn lane.
Kessler was treated at the scene for head pain and released.
Miner, who had two children in her car at the time of the crash, was taken to St. Luke’s to be treated for leg and hand pain. The children, ages 8 and 4, were not injured.
Chadwick received a citation for failure to stop at a steady red traffic signal. He will appear in court at a later date.
New York State Police, Rome Fire Department ant AmCare Ambulance also assisted at the scene.
