On Tuesday around 8:47 a.m. first responders in Wayne County responded to a three-car crash in the Town of Sodus. One of the vehicles involved was a Sheriff’s Office cruiser.
Wayne County Sheriff’s Sergeant Gilbert Sterk was on patrol Tuesday morning, eastbound on State Route 104 and was stopped for oncoming traffic, waiting to turn north onto Redman Road.
That’s when an eastbound vehicle, operated by Jared J. Sherwin, 31, of Rochester, struck the rear of the Sheriff’s vehicle – forcing it into the oncoming lane – where it was struck by a westbound vehicle operated by a 58-year-old Lyons resident.
Sergeant Stern was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released for his injuries. Sherwin was transported to the same hospital and is still being treated.
Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts reports that deputies were assisted by State Police, Sodus and East Williamson fire departments, as well s Sodus Town Ambulance, Silver Waters Ambulance, and Wayne County ALS.
