Roger E Drouin, of Walworth, was transported via Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital after the 11:33 accident. He was listed in guarded condition.
Stephen F Mazzochetti, of Greece, was northbound on Teresa Drive in a 2003 Chevy van, according to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, when he became distracted and drifted into the opposite lane and struck Drouin.
