New York State Police said firefighters rescued a driver from a vehicle that caught fire after a violent two-car wreck on Sand Hill Rd.
It happened around 10 a.m. near Emerson Rd., according to first responders.
Two vehicles collided at the intersection of the two roads- resulting in one person becoming entrapped.
Mercy Flight was called to the scene and airlifted one of the individuals involved.
At this point, state police say a vehicle headed north on Sand Hill Rd. failed to yield the right of way at a stop sign- and drove into the path of another vehicle.
That northbound vehicle caught fire. The driver was identified as 66-year-old Marcia Miller.
Firefighters from the Canandaigua Fire Department pulled her from the burning vehicle. Miller was airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital.
The other driver was identified as a 24-year-old Canandaigua resident. They were taken to Thompson Hospital.
The investigation remains active.
