Father, son injured in Pittsford crashStaff Report | April 28,2014A Pittsford father and son were injured in a crash on West Creek Road today.
Larry Haselton, 63, and David Haselton, 32, were taken by ambulance to Rutland Regional Medical Center after the crash which took place at 12:12 p.m.
The condition of the two men is unclear, but Pittsford Police Chief Joseph "Michael" Warfle said father and son were conscious when they left the scene.
The men were working to repair a barbed wire fence on the side of the road when their truck and all-terrain vehicle were hit by a car driven by Susannah Kamer, 40, of Brandon.
The impact of the crash threw David Haselton, who was standing next to the truck, over the fence and into a pasture that lies about 10 feet below the elevated road.
The senior Haselton was thrown off the ATV and into the barbed wire fence. Warfle said Larry Haselton was trapped by the barbed wire and the ATV which pinned him to the ground.
Warfle said speed appeared to be a factor in the crash which remains under investigation. He said Kamer would be issued traffic violations but as yet he said there was no evidence of a criminal offense.MORE IN This Just In
