Camden, NY (May 24, 2020) – Around 11:38 a.m. yesterday, May 23, a woman was seriously injured in a bicycle accident on NY-69 in Camden.
Police confirmed that the accident took place when 20-year-old Rodney Facteau was driving his passenger vehicle on NY-69 near Brewer Road. He spotted the bicyclist, identified as 63-year-old Mary Lou Miller, but she did not see him.
Miller attempted to cross the road, which was when she noticed the vehicle and was unable to stop in time. Her bicycle struck the mirror of his vehicle.
Miller was immediately transported to a local hospital with critical injuries.
A portion of the road was blocked off in the area while police worked to clear the scene. Their investigation into the collision continues.
