Crash Rips Vehicle in Delaware County
Delaware County Sheriff’s officials are investigating a horrific crash which, at this point, (September 29) is not said to have resulted in any deaths.
Sheriff’s Deputies were called with a report of a serious, two-car Motor Vehicle Accident on Covered Bridge Road in the Town of Sidney on Tuesday, September 26.
According to information given to Emergency Communications Center Dispatchers, several people had been hurt. Callers had said they thought some in the involved vehicles had been thrown from their cars.
Upon arriving on the scene, Deputies say they found one of the vehicles had been ripped into two separate pieces in the crash. The occupants of both vehicles, however had been wearing seat belts and no one had been ejected from either of the vehicles.
In all, four people were transported to health care facilities. One of those patients was later transferred to Upstate University Medical Center in Syracuse as the severity of their injuries required a greater level of care, according to the authorities.
The Sheriff’s office has not released the names of any of those involved, the nature of their injuries or their conditions at this time.
