Children Injured in Tractor-Trailer Accident on Route 14 in Dresden, NY
Dresden, NY — August 22, 2023, two children were injured as the result of a tractor-trailer accident that happened on State Route 14.
Preliminary investigations from the Yates County Sheriff's Department say that the collision occurred at the intersection of Route 14, State Route 54, and Main Street.

It appears their vehicle came to a stop along northbound lanes. While stopped, a tractor-trailer somehow failed to slow down and crashed into the back of Draper's vehicle.
Due to the collision, two children in Draper's vehicle were taken to a hospital. While their injuries were described in the news as non-life-threatening, one of the children was apparently flown from the scene. No other injuries were confirmed. It appears the truck driver was ticketed following the accident.
