BETHLEHEM – Three people were taken to the hospital after a Nov. 30 accident on Kenwood Avenue.
According to Commander Adam Hornick, at around 5:10 p.m., a 2013 Chrysler operated by 78-year-old Robert Heyer, of Delmar, was traveling east when he crossed the double yellow line, sideswiping a 2007 BMW operated by 66-year-old Kevin Herron, of Delmar.
The Chrysler continued into oncoming traffic and struck a westbound 2011 Nissan head-on. The Nissan was operated by 30-year-old Michaela Colagiovanni, of Albany.
Heyer and his passenger, 76-year-old Carol Heyer, were taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital with internal injuries. They are listed in stable condition.
Colagiovanni was also transported to Albany Med with a fractured arm.
Herron was not injured.
Based on witness accounts and the investigation by Bethlehem police, Robert Heyer was cited for tailing to keep right and crossing a double yellow line.
The investigation into why he crossed the yellow line is continuing, but alcohol and speed have been ruled out as contributing factors.
Bethlehem police and the Delmar Fire Department responded.
