Deputies: SF woman’s vehicle traveled 75 feet through the air after missing stop sign at Rt. 89 intersection

A Seneca Falls driver escaped serious injury after her vehicle when over a 20 foot embankment in Ovid on Monday.

Deputies say that around 7:42 a.m. they were called to a one-car personal injury crash at the intersection of County Road 138 and State Route 89 in Ovid.

Upon investigation it was determined that a vehicle operated by Ashley N. Head, 30, of Seneca Falls was eastbound on County Road 138 and went through a stop sign at the intersection of State Route 89.

Deputies say that Head claimed glare caused her to miss the stop sign.

Her vehicle then hit a sign post and went through a yard located at 7035 State Route 89. Her vehicle then drove off a roughly 20-foot embankment, which prompted it to become airborne for approximately 75 feet before striking a tree.

Head was transported to Auburn Community Hospital by South Seneca Ambulance with complaint of back pain.

Deputies were assisted at the scene by the Ovid Fire Department. The investigation remains active, according to the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office.
