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.
