Fortunately, no injuries were reported following a four-vehicle crash on Route 3 near the Monroe County YMCA late Friday morning.

Emergency personnel responded shortly after 11:20 a.m. to Route 3 northbound at EE Road.

The Acadia was carrying four passengers, including young children.

Demond was cited for failure to yield-turning left.
