Crash injures three, closes part of State Route 12 Saturday afternoon

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Police say a two vehicle crash Saturday afternoon just outside of Watertown on Route 12 injured three people.

The accident shut down Route 12 for a time near the intersection of Route 162, commonly known as South Community Drive and North Community Drive.

The crash was in front of Greystone Stables on Route 12.

Police say a 2015 Chevrolet driven by Marvin W. Aguilar-Garcia, 27, of Watertown, headed away from Watertown, (seen here damaged on the back of a tow truck) pulled off the road and was attempting to make a U-turn when it struck a southbound 2011 Jeep.

Two people were in the Jeep, and one of them was trapped for a time, police said. There was one person in the other vehicle. All were transported to Samaritan Medical Center for their injuries.

Several ambulances were on hand, and a helicopter was also called in, though police at the scene said all three people were conscious and alert.

Charges are pending upon further investigation of the crash.
