Drivers cited in two-vehicle accident that blocked Route 5 on Saturday
Traffic tickets were issued to both drivers involved in a two-car, minor-injury accident on Route 5 in Le Roy on Saturday at 3:16 p.m.
One driver is accused of failing to yield right-of-way while the other driver was cited for not properly restraining his children in child-safety seats.
The children, ages 2 and 5, were uninjured.
The accident blocked Route 5 in both directions for nearly a half-hour.
Timothy J. Beaumont, 44, of 103 W. Main St., Le Roy, reportedly drove his 2008 Toyota pick-up from a driveway onto Route 5 just west of the intersection with East Bethany-Le Roy Road.
Jason D. Burk, 36, of 9 North St., Apt. 1, Le Roy, was driving a 1995 Mitsubishi two-door sedan westbound on Route 5 when the car struck Beaumont's pick-up.
Burk reportedly suffered a minor burn on his elbow and was treated at the scene. Also treated at the scene for a minor burn on her face was Laurie J. Brady, 40.
Beaumont had no passengers.
The accident was investigated by Deputy Bradley D. Mazur.
