Three Hurt in Ashford Crash

Three people were hurt in a two-vehicle crash Saturday afternoon on Route 219 in Ashford.

In a report released to WESB today, sheriff’s deputies say a pickup truck driven by 20-year-old Thomas Patterson of Cattaraugus was traveling south when he didn’t see that a car in front of him had slowed to make a left turn and he hit it. Both vehicles then crashed into a culvert.

The driver of the car, 59-year-old David Abbott and his wife, 55-year-old Lisa Abbott, of Victor, New York, were both taken to Bertrand-Chaffee Hospital in Springville for evaluation of neck and other injuries.

Patterson, whose head hit the windshield of his pickup, was also taken by ambulance to Bertrand-Chaffee. He was cited for following too closely.

Route 219 in that area was closed for about an hour while the scene was cleaned up.
