Authorities say minor injuries were reported after a two-car crash in Hopewell. First responders were called to a motor vehicle crash that happened at the intersection of Hopewell Townline and Boyce roads on Thursday, resulting in minor injuries.


The accident involved a 2012 Ram 1500 driven by 57-year-old Todd Brown from Clifton Springs, who was traveling northeast on Boyce Road. Brown failed to stop in time and struck a 2018 Toyota Rav4. The Toyota, operated by 84-year-old Clifford Thorn of Phelps, was stationary in the roadway, waiting behind a school bus that was dropping off children.

Thorn sustained minor injuries from the collision and was transported to Clifton Springs Hospital by Finger Lakes Ambulance for treatment. The incident highlights the need for increased caution on the roads, especially near school buses and in residential areas.
