Two people have died after a two-car crash Tuesday afternoon in the Town of Gainesville, according to The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the sheriff’s office, the crash took place in front of the Wyoming County Highway Department situated at 4328 Route 19.
A 2010 Ford Taurus was heading southbound on Route 19 when a 2001 Volkswagen pulled out of the Wyoming County Highway Department’s parking lot. The sheriff’s office says the Volkswagen did not yield and tried to turn north onto Route 19, resulting in a t-bone collision.
At the time of the accident, a Wyoming County vaccination clinic was taking place at the Wyoming County Highway Department. The sheriff’s office says EMTs from the clinic immediately responded to the accident to help render aid.
The driver and passenger of the Volkswagen died in the crash. Both had just attended the vaccination clinic. Their names are not being revealed at this time until their family has been notified.
The driver of the Ford Taurus was admitted to the Wyoming County Community Health System by ambulance for small injuries.
The investigation is ongoing. The sheriff’s office says charges are not likely in this crash.
