Crash sends three to hospitals

 

A two car crash on Route 22 at the end of Mettowee Street just after 6 p.m. Nov. 26 sent all three occupants to area hospitals with a range of injuries.

The Washington County Sheriffs Office said a southbound vehicle crossed into the path of a northbound vehicle while attempting to turn into Mettowee Street and struck the vehicle head on.

Clarence Gould III, 25, of Wells, Vt. was driving a 2001 Chevy Silverado pickup southbound when he failed to yield the right of way to a northbound 1998 Chevy Lumina car as he attempted to enter Mettowee Street, police said.

Both occupants of the Lumina, Phillip Norton, 32, and Nicholas Norton, 34, were injured and taken to Glens Falls Hospital with lower body injuries.

Phillip Norton had possible broken bones while Nicholas Norton was sent to the hospital for an evaluation, police said.

Gould was transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center suffering from leg and head pain.

Route 22 was closed for about one hour as first responders dealt with the accident scene. Granville EMS, police and fire responded to the scene along with the Washington County Sheriff’s office. Both vehicles were totaled, police said. Police said Monday morning charges in the case were pending.
