A head-on collision along Lewiston Rd. in the Town of Batavia Sunday morning killed the drivers of both vehicles.
The dead were identified as: Quayeshawn D. Smith, 25, of Mill St., Medina, the driver of a northbound Buick sedan and Rosemary Calla, 74, of S. Main St., Oakfield, the driver of a southbound Mazda minivan.
Sgt. James Meier of the Genesee County Sheriff's office said the sedan crossed the center line and struck the minivan head-on. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident was reported shortly before 7a.m. on Lewiston Rd. (Rt 63) about a mile south of Galloway Rd.
The speed limit in the area is 55mph. Meier said it had not yet been determined if speed was a factor in the accident. He noted that conditions at the time were generally clear with a light drizzle and ruled out weather as a possible cause of the crash.
Lewiston Rd. was closed until 9:30a.m. when both vehicles were hauled away on flatbed trailers.
