SHORTSVILLE — Details were sketchy Thursday evening after a crash at the intersection of County Road 28 and Shortsville Road, but one thing is clear.

Emergency rescue crews yet again were called to respond to a serious crash and more motorists were injured at this notorious intersection.

One person was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital by LifeNet helicopter after the two-car crash early Thursday evening, at about 5:43 p.m. Another was transported to Thompson Hospital, according to the Shortsville fire chief. There was no immediate word on injuries.

"We do not know what we're going to find when we respond to a call at that intersection," said Chief Jason Wagner of the Citizens Hose Company in Shortsville. "Sometimes it's carnage, sometimes it's minor. Tonight it was something in between." He noted that responders did not need to extricate anyone from vehicles, as they frequently need to at crashes at that intersection.

The accident remained under investigation Thursday night, but Wagner characterized it as a case where "one driver simply pulled out in front of the other."

Nearly a year ago to the day, two people were injured — one with serious injuries — after a crash at the intersection.

This came six months after a fiery fatal crash at the intersection. Two men were killed at the intersection in March 2016 after the vehicle they were in was struck by a driver who failed to stop at a stop sign on County Road 28.

There are more instances.

An elderly woman died of injuries sustained in a wreck at the intersection in October 2011. An entire family was killed there in the 1990s.

Ontario County completed a major makeover of the intersection in 2006 that included cutting down a hill to the north of the intersection to improve sight lines. The intersection was also widened, while double stop signs and double stop-ahead signs were placed at and near the intersection on County Road 28.

Still, several in the community have advocated for the installation of traffic signals or a roundabout at the intersection to make it safer for drivers.

"We're very eager for the roundabout to be installed as soon as possible," Wagner said. He added, "People need to exercise care at every intersection. People need to focus and pay attention — you're not really driving a car; you're driving a two thousand-pound death machine."

As of Thursday night, sheriff’s deputies were attempting to determine what caused the crash.

In addition to deputies, Shortsville firefighters and ambulance crews responded to the scene, and an ALS unit from Victor-Farmington Ambulance. Wagner said firefighters were on the scene doing accident reconstruction for five hours.
