Madison County sheriff's deputies are continuing their investigation into a serious two vehicle crash that occurred at about 7:30 p.m. Oct. 14 on Oxbow Road in the town of Lincoln.
According to Madison County Undersheriff Doug Bailey, a Dodge Neon operated by Anthony V. Jayson, 41, of 202 Wilson St., Canastota, was traveling in a southerly direction, uphill and rounding a curve on the Oxbow Road when he lost control of his car. Crossed into the southbound lane and slid sideways into the path of a northbound mini-van.
The driver's side of Jayson's vehicle was struck by the mini-van. Both vehicles were destroyed, according to the sheriff's department's report.
Marianne Miller, 54, of 216 N. Court St., Wampsville, operated the mini-van. Marianne's daughter Jessica Miller, 16, was the front seat passenger. Both members of the Miller family received minor injuries but declined medical attention at the scene.
Jayson was administered CPR at the scene by members of the Greater Lenox Ambulance Services and Lincoln Fire Department. Jayson was transported to the SUNY Health Science Center at Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse.
Hospital staff advised deputies that Jayson was listed in critical condition as of the morning of Oct. 15. Jayson sustained serious head, back and internal injuries.
According to uninvolved witnesses, Jayson's vehicle appeared to be traveling at a high rate of speed when his vehicle slid sideways into the opposite lane into the path of the mini-van.
The New York State Police assisted deputies at the scene and in the investigation. Members of the Sheriff's Office Accident Reconstruction and Evidence Specialists are continuing their investigation. No charges have been filed at this time.
