A 19-year-old Corfu woman was killed Sunday night in a complicated three-vehicle accident after the car she was riding in was involved in two collisions that apparently occurred just seconds apart, according to the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department.
Kelsey N. Milks was flown by Mercy Flight to Erie County Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 8:15 p.m. The driver of that car, Dana R. Cipra, 20, of Batavia, was listed in fair condition in ECMC.
The accident occurred shortly before 7 p.m. on Route 63 in the Town of Shelby, between Oak Orchard Ridge Road and the Orleans-Genesee county line.
The first collision was a head-on crash between a northbound Dodge Caravan and a southbound Chevrolet Cavalier, the car carrying Milks. Upon impact, the van ran off the east side of the road, down an embankment and into a ditch. The Cavalier came to rest in the center of the road.
That vehicle then was struck by a Chevrolet Cobalt.
The driver of the Caravan, Walter C. Hawkins, 73, of Medina, was treated and released from Medina Memorial Hospital. The two occupants of the Cobalt were not injured.
