Deputies said Patrick Seeber, 32, of Canastota, was driving a gray 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer eastbound on Route 365 in the left turning lane for Route 31 and when he attempted to make the turn, crossed into the westbound lane and struck a black 2012 Volkswagen Jetta, operated by Bruce Pratt, 37, of Rome, who was traveling westbound through the intersection at 5:59 a.m.

The collision caused heavy front end damage to both vehicles. Seeber was treated and released at the scene for ankle pain.
