Deputies: Driver wasn’t licensed, caused dump truck rollover in Bloomfield

Late last week, the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police Ionia Fire Department and Honeoye Falls Ambulance responded to the intersection of Conn Rd. and State Route 5&20 for the report of a rollover accident.

Deputies say that Cydney Hess, of Bloomfield, was making a left turn onto State Route 5&20 from Conn Rd. when she failed to yield the right of way at the stop sign — being struck by a dump truck.

The dump truck was being operated by Robert Clark, of Prattsburgh, which rolled over — spilling sand as he tried to avoid the collision.

Hess complained of neck pain and her front-seat passenger — identified as a 12-year-old — suffered from a swollen eye. Both were transported to Thompson Hospital.

Hess was issued tickets for failing to yield the right of way and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation.

Rt. 5&20 was temporarily closed as crews worked to clear the scene and investigate.
