Batavia man dies in head-on collision in Canandaigua

post by Howard Owens in batavia, accident

A Batavia man was pronounced dead at the scene of a head-on crash in Canandaigua at 2:54 p.m. yesterday, after another driver reportedly suffered a medical condition, causing him to black out.

Barry E. Scutt, 57, of 17 Vernon Ave., Batavia, was driving a 2007 Ford Focus westbound on Route 5 just west of Cooley Road, when his car was struck head-on by a 2006 Honda Ridgeline driven by Steven A. Kloos, 68, of 6034 Grimble Road, Canandaigua.

Witnesses reported seeing the Honda leave the roadway on the westbound shoulder and strike a mailbox and road sign. Calls were made to 9-1-1 reporting a reckless driver. The car then continued westbound in the wrong lane for about one mile before colliding with Scutt's vehicle.

Scutt's Ford Focus suffered heavy damage and members of the Cheshire and East Bloomfield fire departments performed an extrication.

Scutt was wearing a seat belt and his air bag did deploy.

He suffered head and chest injuries, which appear to be the cause of his death, according to the Ontario County Sheriff's Office.

Kloos was not wearing a seat belt, but his air bag did deploy. He suffered chest, pelvis and leg injuries.

He was extricated by firefighters and after being treated at the scene by medics from Canandaigua and Fingerlakes Ambulance he was flown by Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

Kloos was cited for failure to keep right, reckless driving and failure to wear a seat belt.
