HANOVER – One person was taken to the hospital after a two-vehicle crash late Friday in Chautauqua County.

The crash occurred about 7:30 p.m. Friday on Routes 5 and 20 in the Town of Hanover, Chautauqua County sheriff’s officials said.

Lydia R. Baake, 18, of Angola, was traveling east when she lost control of her vehicle, which hydroplaned into oncoming traffic, officials said.

Baake struck a vehicle driven by John W. Peterson, 78, of Dunkirk, then continued on and collided with a building. Baake and her passenger, Matthew J. Mardino, 20, of North Collins, were not injured.

Peterson also was uninjured, but his passenger, Carol D. Peterson, 73, of Dunkirk, was taken to Lake Shore Hospital to be treated for minor injuries, officials said.

Baake was issued traffic tickets for speed not reasonable and prudent and failure to keep right. She is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
