Drivers hurt in rear-end collision
Both drivers were hospitalized after a two-vehicle rear-ending on Rome-New London Road Thursday afternoon.
Sheriff’s deputies said TJ Valencourt, 21, of Rome, was eastbound at about 6:40 p.m. following too closely behind a 2017 Nissan Van, driven by Burke Chmielewski, 36, of Rome. When the van stopped, deputies said Valencourt was unable to stop his own 2016 Chevy Cruze in time and struck Chmielewski’s Nissan.
Both Valencourt and Chmielewski were taken to Rome Memorial Hospital for minor injuries, authorities said. Valencourt was ticketed for the crash and is scheduled to appear in City Court.
