Yates County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the scene around 10:34 a.m. after Kenneth Colegrove, 80, of Macdougall, collided with a parked vehicle belonging to Alma Decker, 85, of Dundee.

Investigations revealed that Colegrove was attempting to pass a tractor-trailer on the right, which was preparing to turn left onto Horizon Park Drive.
