A tragic three-vehicle collision in Newfield resulted in the death of a 17-year-old and serious injuries to another teen on December 12.
New York State Police at Ithaca reported the accident occurred around 12:50 p.m. on West Danby Road near Piper Road. The crash involved a Toyota Yaris, a Jeep Patriot, and a Cadillac CT6.
According to the investigation, the Toyota Yaris, driven by 18-year-old Dale T. Beeman of Spencer, rear-ended the Jeep Patriot, which had stopped for a turning vehicle. The impact caused the Yaris to veer into oncoming traffic, where it was struck by the Cadillac CT6.
