Police responded with the Seneca Falls Fire Department and North Seneca Ambulance. Following investigation it was determined that a vehicle was attempted to cross Route 414 from the Top’s plaza to McDonald’s.

That vehicle failed to yield the right of way to another vehicle that was traveling south on Route 414.

After the initial collision, the vehicle that was traveling south left the road and struck a third vehicle. All three vehicles were heavily damaged and towed from the scene.

One occupant was transported by North Seneca Ambulance to a nearby hospital for non life threatening injuries.

It was determined that the operator of the third vehicle, who did not cause the accident, was operating her vehicle with a revoked license. Corey Smith, 37, of Seneca Falls was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation.

She was released on an appearance ticket.

Police did not release any information or charges connected to the driver that failed to yield the right of way.
