Rome woman injured in three-vehicle crash


A Rome woman was hospitalized after a three-vehicle crash at the intersection of Rome-Westmoreland Road and Rome-Oriskany Road on Tuesday.

Upon arrival at approximately 2:15 p.m., deputies determined that Thomas Chadwick, 71, of Little Falls, was driving a white 2019 Chevy pickup truck east on Lamphear Road and failed to stop for a steady red traffic signal. Chadwick’s vehicle entered the intersection where it collided with a 2016 Chrysler van traveling north on Rome-Westmoreland Road, driven by Heather Miner, 36, of Rome.

Both vehicles continued into the westbound lane of traffic on Rome-Oriskany Road, striking a gray 1995 Subaru sedan operated by John Kessler, 63, of Rome, that was stopped in the right turn lane for Martin Street.

Kessler was treated and released on scene for head pain. Miner was transported by AmCare Ambulance to St Luke’s Hospital for a complaint of leg and hand pain. Two children in Miner’s vehicle were not injured.

Chadwick was issued a citation for failure to stop at a steady red traffic signal. He is scheduled to appear in City Court.

The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by Rome Fire Department, AmCare Ambulance, and the New York State Police.
