Five sent to Corning Hospital after crash

LAWRENCEVILLE — Two vehicles with multiple passengers crashed after a misjudgement on space between the vehicles around 1:30 p.m. along Route 15 coming from the New York border.

Jessica K. Jacquier-Hann, 35, of Bath, New York, was operating a Chevrolet Suburban with five minors inside at an unsafe speed, according to police reports, when she struck Nicole L. Hill, 42, of Waterloo, New York, who was operating a Nissan Murano.

Hill had three passengers, one of which was a minor.

Both vehicles were driving south on Route 15 in the right lane entering Pennsylvania from New York, according to a report.

Jacquier-Hann was approaching Hill but misjudged the distance between vehicles and attempted to veer to the left, at which point the front portion of her car struck the rear portion of Hill’s car.

The Suburban then rotated across both traveling lanes, impacting a guard rail in the median, the report said.

The vehicle rolled onto its roof in the left traffic lane. The Murano rotated back and forth through the travel lanes into the guide rail in the median, police reported.

Jacquier-Hann and all five of her passengers, ranging in age from 1 to 5, were transported to Corning Hospital for minor injuries, the report said.

Hill and one passenger were flown to Strong Memorial Hospital, another passenger was transported to Corning Hospital and a third was uninjured, according to the report.
