A two-car accident in Alexander shortly after 10 Sunday night, which resulted in minor injuries, was caused by a driver allegedly traveling at an unsafe speed for road conditions, according to the accident report.
Alexander resident Nicholas P. Hiscutt, 19, was driving a 2000 Chevy sedan southbound on Route 98 near Dodgeson Road at an allegedly unsafe speed for road conditions. He reportedly lost control of the car and it crossed into the northbound lane, a witness told the investigating officer, Deputy Kevin McCarthy.
Hiscutt's car was struck by a 2003 Chevy Suburban driven by 29-year-old Jon D. Smith, of Prune Street in Batavia, causing both vehicles to veer onto the east shoulder of the roadway. Sylvia L. Smith was a passenger in the Chevy Suburban.
Minor injuries were reported and Jon Smith was taken to UMMC. Hiscutt was issued a citation for allegedly driving at an unreasonable speed.
