WATERVILLE — A driver suffered minor injuries in a two-vehicle crash on West Main Street Friday evening.

Deputies said Eileen Thayer, 70, of Clark Mills, was driving her 2016 Chevrolet Malibu northbound and attempted to make a left turn onto West Main Street when she failed to yield to Nicole Craver, 31, of Bouckville, Madison County, who was operating a Mitsubishi Outlander eastbound at 7:27 p.m.

Thayer’s front driver side bumper struck Craver’s front passenger side bumper and both vehicles sustained minor damage from the collision.

Craver suffered minor injuries and was evaluated by members of Waterville Fire Department and Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance, but denied further treatment, according to deputies.

Thayer was charged with failure to yield the right of way while entering a roadway and will appear in Village Court.
