Three-Car Accident Sends Two To WCA

LAKEWOOD – Two Jamestown residents sustained minor injuries Thursday after their vehicle was rear-ended at a busy intersection.

According to the Lakewood-Busti Police Department, the two individuals-whose names were not released – stopped their Mercury Grand Marquis at a traffic light at the intersection of East Fairmount Avenue and Fairdale Avenue.

A Lakewood woman – whose name was also not released – stopped her Chevy Tahoe behind them.

Shortly after 2 p.m., the Lakewood woman noticed the traffic light turn green, but allegedly failed to notice that the Grand Marquis had yet to move forward. She rear-ended the vehicle, forcing the Grand Marquis to rear-end a Subaru Forester in front of it.

The two Jamestown residents inside the Grand Marquis were transported to WCA Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The Lakewood woman will be charged with following too closely, police said.

Lakewood, Busti and Ashville fire departments responded to the scene, as well as the Lakewood-Busti Police Department.
