One seriously injured in Phelps crash at Route 14/318 intersection

An accident on State Route 14 in the Town of Phelps at the State Route 318 intersection left two hospitalized, one of which had serious internal injuries.

Deputies in Ontario County say that a vehicle being operated by Ray Saugata, 42, of India was traveling northbound on State Route 14 in a 2007 Honda sedan. Saugata’s vehicle turned left at the Route 318 intersection causing a t-bone collision with a vehicle, which was traveling southbound on Route 14.

The driver of the second vehicle, Alan Verstreate, 62, of Phoenix, Arizona suffered minor injuries and was transported to Clifton Springs hospital. A passenger in Saugata’s vehicle suffered serious internal injuries, though that passenger is expected to make a full recovery. The passenger was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital where they are being treated.

Saugata was cited for failure to yield the right of way when making a left turn. The charges will be answered in Phelps Town Court.
