A two-vehicle crash on State Route 14A near Rasmussen Road in Yates County resulted in an injury and a traffic citation on Monday afternoon, according to the Yates County Sheriff’s Office.

At approximately 3:08 p.m., deputies responded to the scene where Gary A. Shoff, 72, of Penn Yan, was stopped in traffic waiting to turn into a farm lane. Patrick Miskell, 33, also of Penn Yan, failed to stop in time and struck Shoff’s vehicle from behind.


Shoff was examined by medical personnel at the scene and declined further medical attention. Miskell, however, sustained an arm injury and was transported to a nearby hospital by Penn Yan Ambulance for treatment.

Following the incident, Miskell was issued a traffic citation for following too closely. He is scheduled to appear in Benton Town Court at a later date to respond to the charge. The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
