Thorndike — Three people were taken to the hospital following a two-vehicle crash on Route 220 late in the morning of Oct. 6.

Deputy James Porter said Sophie Marose, 19, of New York was attempting to make a left turn into Greenhouse Lane at 11:30 a.m. and failed to see an oncoming Nissan pickup truck driven by Lindsay Bean that had just crested a knoll, heading toward Knox.

Marose turned into the path of the oncoming truck, which was also hauling a trailer with two horses inside. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage, Porter said, and were probably totaled in the crash.

Porter said Bean was not injured, nor were the two horses. Marose and her two passengers, Kathryn Falcetti and Emma Metcalf, were taken to an area hospital. Porter said Oct. 7 all three suffered minor injuries.

Route 220 was closed for almost an hour while emergency personnel worked at the scene. The road was reopened shortly before 12:30 p.m. to one lane of traffic.

Both vehicles were towed by Ryan's Auto Body.
