The names of the two people killed in the crash Friday at the intersection of County Roads 28 and 41 have not been released.
FARMINGTON — Three of the four children injured in a fiery fatal crash Friday were treated at Strong Memorial Hospital and released later that night, according to Ontario County sheriff’s deputies.
A 10-year-old passenger was taken into surgery with internal injuries and was listed in stable condition Friday night, deputies said.
Names of the two people who were killed in the crash, which happened at 3:10 p.m. at the intersection of County Road 28 and Shortsville Road, had not been released as of Friday night.
Deputies said a 2004 Ford Explorer traveling east on Shortsville Road failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection. The vehicle then struck a northbound 2002 Ford F-150, which was then pushed into a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu, which was westbound on Shortsville Road, deputies said.
The Ford F-150 burst into flames. Bystanders and first-responding deputies were unable to remove either of the vehicle’s occupants, deputies said. The driver and a passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.
The operator of the Malibu was treated at the scene and released, deputies said.
The driver of the Explorer, which was carrying the children, also was treated and released Friday, deputies said.
The crash victims were taken to the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office. Ontario County Coroner Kevin Henderson and the Monroe County officials are working to determine the cause of death.
No charges have been filed at this time, although the Ontario County District Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case, deputies said.
Shortsville and Manchester firefighters, along with Canandaigua, Victor-Farmington and Finger Lakes ambulance crews assisted at the scene. Shortsville firefighters extinguished the blaze.
Shortsville Road, between Payne and Sandhill roads, and County Road 28, between Townline Road and Route 96, were closed for approximately five hours.
All of the occupants involved in the crash appeared to have had their seat belts on, deputies said.
