Deputies: Two hospitalized after crash along Rt. 318 in Junius

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports that on May 16 at approximately 1:10 p.m. deputies responded to the intersection of State Rt. 318 and Nine Foot Road for a two-car personal injury crash.

Deputies say a vehicle operated by Wendy Wickum, 50, of Newark was eastbound on Rt. 318 when she attempted to pass another vehicle, which was turning north onto Nine Foot Road.

She collided with a vehicle operated by John Scholl, 79, of Waterloo, who was turning onto Nine Foot Road.

Wickum and her passenger, 82-year old Lee Wickum of Lyons, sustained minor neck and chest injuries and were transported to Geneva General Hospital.

Deputies say Wickum was issued a traffic ticket for passing unsafely and is to appear before the Town of Junius Court at a later date.
