TOWN OF SANGERFIELD — Two people suffered minor injuries in a collision involving a vehicle and tractor trailer at the Routes 12 and 20 intersection Tuesday afternoon.
Deputies said Erin Burgess, 49, of Bradford, Mass., was operating her 2011 Toyota Sequoia eastbound on Route 20 when she came to a stop at a red light before attempting to proceed through the intersection. While going through the intersection, her vehicle was struck by a tractor trailer driven by Adnan Husic, 38, of New Hartford, at 3:45 p.m.
Deputies said due to the size and weight of the rig, Husic was unable to avoid the collision. Burgess and a passenger in her vehicle were transported by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Utica, for evaluation and treatment.
Burgess was charged with failure to yield the right of way and will appear in Town Court.
State police and Waterville Volunteer Fire Department assisted.
