UPDATE: FRIDAY, 8:03 PM
Police have identified the drivers involved in the serious crash in Farmington, which left two men hospitalized on Thursday. The operator of the Nissan Versa was 84-year-old Walter Davis, of Shortsville. Davis is in guarded condition, according to State Police, who provided an update on Friday.
The operator of the van, which struck Davis’ Versa was identified as 54-year-old Glenn Feidner, also of Shortsville. Feidner’s condition was less-critical, as State Police indicate that he was given a checkup and released from F.F. Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua.
FingerLakes1.com will provide updates throughout the weekend on condition of Davis, as information is made available.
One person was airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital on Thursday after a serious accident at the intersection of County Road 28 and Shortsville Road in Farmington.
The intersection is a location where first responders were called to earlier this year in another fatal wreck. This time the injuries for one of the motorists were considered ‘life threatening’.
Those on the scene say that the crash took place around 4:30 pm when a Nissan Versa pulled out in front of a van, which was driving north on County Road 28. While the driver of the van wasn’t seriously injured, that person was transported to F.F. Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua for a checkover.
Meanwhile, the driver of the Nissan Versa suffered what those on the scene were calling ‘life-threatening’ injuries. Specifics of the injuries, as well as the identities of the individuals involved have not been released.
It would appear as though, according to some witnesses that while the Versa made a stop at the intersection before turning — that when the vehicle made the turn — it did so into the path of the northbound van.
The other notable accident at this intersection resulted in two men dying when their pickup truck was slammed by a vehicle being operated by Jason Jensen, of Farmington who ran a stop sign.
