A three vehicle crash along Route 63 in the Alabama Swamp has taken the life of a young Corfu woman.
19-year-old Kelsey N. Milks of Corfu died at ECMC in Buffalo at 8:15 last night, about an hour after the accident near the Genesee-Orleans County Line.
Kelsey was a front seat passenger in a Chevrolet Cavalier driven by 20-year-old Dana Cipra of Batavia.
Orleans County Deputies describe the accident as two separate incidents.
The first was a head-on crash between a northbound Dodge Caravan and the southbound Cavalier in which Kelsey was riding.
The impact sent the Caravan off the road and down an embankment. The Cavalier came to rest in the center of the highway.
Moments later, deputies said, was the second event.
A Chevrolet Cobalt struck the Cavalier. The driver of the Cobalt, 73-year-old Walter Hawkins, was treated and released at Medina Hospital.
The occupants of the Cobalt, both from Monroe County, were not injured.
Cipra, the driver of the car in which Kelsey Milks died, remains hospitalized at ECMC.
