Two people injured in accident Sunday on Galloway Road, Batavia

posted by Howard B. Owens in accident, news, batavia, byron.

A 29-year-old driver from Batavia is accused of failing to stop for a stop sign on Galloway Road leading to a two-car accident that sent two people, including a child, to the hospital at 12:31 p.m., Sunday.

Valerie Covill, of West Main Street Road, was cited by Deputy Kevin McCarthy, who investigated the accident. 

Covill was reportedly westbound on Galloway Road in a 2016 Hyundai sedan when she allegedly failed to stop for a stop sign at Slusser Road.

The Hyundai struck at 2015 Toyota sedan driven by Kyle A. Olmstead, 32, of Byron Holly Road, Byron.

Olmstead wasn't injured but his passenger, 41-year-old Jessica Alexyn, was transported to UMMC by ambulance for a complaint of stomach pain.

One of Covill's passengers, Brenden Delmastro, age 2, was also taken to UMMC for evaluation. 

Another passenger in Covill's car, 5-year-old Caleb Delmastro, was not injured.

The Slusser Rd intersections [Pratt, Galloway, TLRd] are accidents waiting to happen. I've never understood why Slusser Rd has straight thru priority, when more and more cross-roads in the country [towns/county] are 4-way stops. Of course someone [as in this case] can still fail to stop, but if the other direction has to stop also, that kinda improves the unlikelihood of such as crash.

Maybe they should install a Round-About... OMG
