Police: three car accidents in front of McDonald’s caused by a driver who did not give way

Police said they were called to State Route 414 near McDonald’s around noon Friday to a crash involving three cars.

The call arrived at the Seneca County 911 center at 11:58 a.m., police said.

Police responded with the Seneca Falls Fire Department and North Seneca Ambulance. Following an investigation, it was determined that a vehicle had attempted to cross Route 414 from Top’s Place to McDonald’s.

This vehicle did not yield to another vehicle traveling south on Highway 414.

After the first collision, the southbound vehicle left the road and struck a third vehicle. All three vehicles were heavily damaged and towed off the scene.

One occupant was transported by North Seneca Ambulance to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It was determined that the driver of the third vehicle, which did not cause the accident, was driving her vehicle with a revoked license. Corey Smith, 37, of Seneca Falls has been charged with aggravated unlicensed operation.

She was released on an appearance ticket.

Police have not released any information or charges related to the driver who did not yield the right of way.
