Deputies: One hospitalized after two car crash at busy intersection on Rt. 332

On Tuesday around 2 p.m. deputies responded to a two car crash at the intersection of State Route 332 and Airport Road.

When deputies arrived they found a pickup truck on its side, as well as a sedan facing northbound traffic in the southbound lanes.

Deputies identified the driver of the sedan as 42-year-old Leonel Melendez, of Bloomfield, and the operator of the pickup truck as Adrian Santana, 28, of Canandaigua.




Melendez was traveling south on Route 332 when he failed to stop at the light- entering the intersection- striking the other vehicle. The force of the collision caused it to rollover on to its side.

Finger Lakes Ambulance and the Canandaigua Fire Department were both called to the scene. Santana was transported to Thompson Hospital. Melendez was issued traffic tickets for operating out of class, without a license, and for not obeying a traffic signal.

The charges will be answered at a later date in local court.
