An ambulance was struck in a three-car crash late Friday on State Highway 23 in the Town of Davenport, sending several people to the hospital.
New York State Police said the crash happened at 6:48 p.m., near the intersection of the highway and Regan Way. A Pontiac G6 driven by Kevin L. Johnson, 56 of Windham, had been stopped while waiting to turn left into the Mirabito when he was rear-ended by a Hyundai Veloster driven by 20-year-old Shaun M. Jones of Davenport, according to troopers.
The collision caused the Hyundai to enter the westbound lane and into the path of an ambulance which was traveling west on State Highway 23, troopers said. The ambulance struck a guiderail.
The driver of the ambulance, 41-year-old Milford resident Gerald D. Brown, was transported to A.O Fox Hospital, along with his passenger, a 21-year-old man from Sherburne.
Jones has since been released from the hospital. The passenger in his vehicle, a 19-year-old woman from Otego, was taken by ambulance to Bassett Medical Center.
Troopers said Johnson was not hospitalized.
All three vehicles were towed from the scene, troopers said, and the investigation remains active.
