A Westfield man was charged with a traffic infraction after his car rear-ended a vehicle Saturday afternoon on Route 20 in the Town of Portland.

John D. Sisson, 42, was following too closely and rear-ended a vehicle turning into a driveway, according to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office.

Sisson and his passenger, as well as a passenger in the first car, were taken to Westfield Memorial Hospital with injuries. The passengers’ names and conditions were not released.

Sisson’s citation for following too closely will be handled in Town of Portland Court at a later date, the sheriff’s office said.
