LEE – A Rome woman was hospitalized following a one-car crash in the town of Lee Friday afternoon, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies say just before 4 p.m. Friday, 18-year-old Jordan Accuri was driving northbound on State Route 26 in Lee and she was trying to turn onto Thomas Drive when she lost control of her 2006 Mazda SUV. Accuri’s vehicle struck a stop sign and then a tree, then came to a rest just before a concrete wall, according to deputies.
Accuri was transported to Rome Memorial Hospital by AmCare Ambulance to be treated for her injuries. Deputies say Accuri was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, which prevented serious injuries.
Accuri was issued a citation for failure to keep right, and she’s scheduled to appear in Town of Lee Court at a later date.
