Two people were transported to an area hospital following a two-car accident at 6:57 p.m., yesterday, at Route 63 and Route 246 in the Town of Pavilion.

An initial investigation indicates that a 2007 Hyundai Azera was northbound on Route 246 and a 2019 Ford Expedition was northwest on Route 63.  The Hyundai allegedly failed to yield to cross traffic and proceeded into the intersection. The Expedition struck the Hyundai.

The impact sent the Hyundai off the north shoulder of Route 63. The Hyundai overturned and then came to rest on the northwest corner of the intersection. The Expedition continued on Route 63 before coming to rest in the southeast lane of travel.

The Hyundai was driven by Leah R. Appleton, 18, of Hilton. Her passenger was Carols J. Diaz, 19, of Brockport. Appleton and Diaz were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment of apparently minor injuries.

The Expedition was driven by Irving J. Denis, 32, of New York City, and his passenger was Reginald Denis, 41, also of NYC. Both were treated on scene and released.

The crash is being investigated by Sgt. Andrew Hale, Genesee County Sheriff's Office, along with Deputy Erik Andre, Deputy Jonathan Dimming, and members of the Crash Management Team.

A family in Pavilion would like to get their 2003 Chevy Silverado back.

It was stolen at 5:20 this morning.

It's dark gray/black with a light bar, and a plow mount (the plow was not attached at the time it was stolen). The passenger side door handle is broken. There are glow lights under the truck and the front license plate is on the driver's side grill. There is a plastic toolbox across the bed of the truck.

Whoever stole the truck apparently headed north on Roanoke Road because there was sheet steel in the bed of the truck that fell out.

State Police took the stolen vehicle report. The State Police can be reached at (585) 344-6200. A friend of the owner, Jessica Wolcott, can be reached at (585) 815-3625.
