DEERFIELD – Two people from Gloversville were hospitalized following a one-car crash in the town of Deerfield early Tuesday morning, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies say around 3:50 a.m. Tuesday, 22-year-old Tomas Fernandez II was driving a 2014 Buick eastbound on Route 8 in the town of Deerfield when he tried to make a right-hand turn and his vehicle slid on the snow-covered road. His vehicle then struck the guide rail at the intersection of Route 8 and Route 28.
Deputies say that Fernandez and the front-seat passenger, his father, 54-year-old Tomas Fernandez, both complained of chest and pack pain, and they were transported to St. Elizabeth Medical Center by Kunkel Ambulance.
