Deputies: Unlicensed teen caused Farmington crash on Rt. 96 that sent two to the hospital

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office provided an update on a personal injury crash that happened along State Route 96 in Farmington on Friday.


The accident happened a little before 6 p.m. in front of McDonald’s.

Deputies said a 17-year-old operator of an SUV pulled out of the McDonald’s parking lot in front of a sedan operated by 27-year-old Raymond Sims, of Geneva. Both Sims and his passenger, identified as a 24-year-old Newark woman, were transported to Thompson Hospital with non life threatening injuries.


Meanwhile, the 17-year-old, who was not identified by deputies in a release, was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way and aggravated unlicensed operation. A 15-year-old was also in the SUV at the time of the crash and escaped injury.
