Ontario County Sheriff’s Deputies, along with Oaks Corners and Phelps firefighters and Phelps and Finger Lakes Ambulance crews responded to a three car crash Monday on Route 14 in Phelps.
Investigation showed 24 year old Hayden Reynolds of Norfolk, VA was traveling south on Route 14 and rear ended a vehicle driven by 24 year old Michael Watts of Foothill Ranch, CA. Watts was waiting for traffic and attempting to make a left hand turn into a parking lot on Route 14 when the crash occurred.

Watts and Hall were not hurt, but Reynolds suffered a broken arm and a large laceration to his leg. He was extricated from his vehicle by Oaks Corners FD and transported by Phelps Ambulance to Strong Hospital in Rochester.
Everyone involved was wearing a seat belt. Hayden was issued a ticket for following too closely. Route 14 was closed for a short time while Deputies investigated the crash.
