Five hospitalized after chain-reaction crash in Ontario County

Deputies say five people were hurt-and-hospitalized following a chain-reaction crash on State Route 5&20 near Mumby Road in Hopewell.

Yajaira Pesante, 26, of Geneva was traveling west when she stopped for an unknown vehicle that made an abrupt right turn.


Her vehicle was struck from behind by another operated by Quinton Wormuth-Mundell, 19, of Ovid, who was struck by another vehicle operated by Laura Kinney, 38, of Geneva.

Deputies said five people were transported to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Drugs and alcohol were not factors, according to deputies, who said that Kinney was ticketed.
