A Penfield motorist was injured in a three-vehicle accident Thursday afternoon at the intersection of County Road 28 and Emerson Road in the Town of Canandaigua, in which a collision sent her vehicle into a telephone pole.

Patricia Carney, 73, of Penfield, was driving a 2020 Toyota Rav 4 eastbound on Emerson Road at about 4:35 p.m. when she failed to yield the right of way for a northbound vehicle on County Road 28, according to the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office. The collision caused Carney’s vehicle to run into an RG&E telephone pole and the other vehicle — a 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche driven by Isaac Wilson, 39, of Walworth — to collide with a third vehicle at the stop sign on the west side of the intersection, a 2013 Jeep Wrangler driven by Shaman Watts-Blood, 21, of Canandaigua.

Carney had a large laceration to her head and was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital by Canandaigua Emergency Squad. Wilson and Watts-Blood were not injured. Carney was cited with failing to yield right of way at a stop sign and will appear later in Town of Canandaigua Court.

Emerson Road was closed from County Road 28 to Sand Hill Road for a short period of time.

Canandaigua firefighters were on the scene and assisted with traffic control.
