Serious Auto Crash in Davenport Center Sunday
I happened upon a serious car crash which had just happened about 7:25pm Sunday night. I was traveling west on Rt. 23 about to enter Davenport Center when cars were stopped ahead of me and pulled over to the side of the road. I got out and looked down on to High Point Spur Road where a terrible two car head on crash had just occurred. Onlookers told me that two small cars hit head on at a turn in the road just off Rt. 23. They said they were multiple serious injuries.
About a dozen emergency personnel and vehicles were already on the scene when I got there, just minutes after the accident happened. While I was there emergency vehicles continued to arrive including an ambulance from Stamford. Also, I witnessed the Life Flight medical helicopter arriving and landing in a nearby farmer's field (see photo). CNYNEWS.COM will have more as details are known.
UPDATE: State police that investigated the accident did not release names of those involved, but said one vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic and collided head-on. Three people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries who are expected to be released today. Both cars were totaled.
