A Geneva man was airlifted and remains in critical condition after an accident on Yellow Tavern Road on Tuesday night.
Seneca County Sheriff Tim Luce reports that around 8:30 pm deputies responded to a personal injury motor vehicle accident on Yellow Tavern Road involving a tractor trailer and car. Bruce Maybury, 50, of Waterloo was attempting to back off the road when another vehicle heading westbound on Yellow Tavern Road collided with his tractor trailer.
Deputies say that the Mustang, operated by Ronald Swinehart, 58, of Geneva passed underneath the tractor trailer – sheering off the roof of the vehicle. The Mustang came to rest just off the shoulder of the roadway.
Swinehart was airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital by LifeNet where he remains in critical condition, according to Luce. Swinehart’s 17-year-old daughter was a passenger in the Mustang and suffered injuries to her head and chest. She was transported via South Seneca Ambulance to Strong Memorial Hospital. Luce said she was treated and released.
Waterloo Fire Department extricated both Swinehart’s from the Mustang and remained on the scene assisting deputies for nearly three hours while the roadway was closed for investigation. Deputies were also assisted by Ontario County’s DOT unit.
The accident remains under investigation.
