A Sheriff's Office youth officer involved in an accident on Route 33 in Stafford on Tuesday has been cited for alleged failure to yield the right of way, according to an accident report released by the department.
John Dehm, driving a county-owned 2009 Chevy sedan, was southbound on Mill Road at 4:55 p.m., when he approached a yield sign at Route 33. He said he stopped and checked both ways but did not see a vehicle on Route 33.
His car struck the passenger's side front tire of a 2011 Lincoln SUV, which skidded off the south shoulder and struck a concrete foundation of a demolished building.
The report says that a utility pole near the intersection may have obstructed Dehm's view.
Vicki J. McKeirnan, 62, of Batavia, suffered minor injuries and was transported by private vehicle to UMMC.
The accident was investigated by Sgt. Ron Meides.
