Phelps, NY (September 4, 2020) – Two children, ages 11 and 9, were killed in a crash that was reported on the New York State Thruway (I-90) in the town of Phelps. The tragic collision was reported at around 10:29 a.m. on Thursday morning, September 3rd.
According to the New York State Police, the children were riding in the back of a minivan as it slowed down due to a lane closure near the Junius Ponds rest area. The driver of a pickup truck failed to yield and struck the rear-end of the van, pushing the vehicle into a third. The third vehicle then struck a tractor-trailer.
Police and emergency responders arrived at the scene where both children were pronounced deceased. Both the driver and passenger of the minivan had to be airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital to be treated for serious injuries. Crews transported the driver of the third vehicle to Geneva General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the pickup suffered only minor injuries and police officials say that charges are currently pending. No identities have been released as the investigation into this incident is ongoing.
