 A two-car crash near the Wayne County Fairgrounds sent three people to the hospital Tuesday.

According to State Police at Honesdale, Cheryl Williams of Forest City was headed north on Route 191 when she attempted to make a left hand turn onto Miller Drive, crossing into the path of a Ford Explorer being driven by David Layman of Morganville, N.J.

Layman, who’d been headed south on Route 191, struck the passenger side of Williams’ car.

A 16-year-old passenger in Williams’ car suffered a moderate injury and had to be lifeflighted from the scene to CMC in Scranton, according to Trooper Terrance Branning.

Williams was transported by ambulance to CMC, while Layman was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital. No word on their condition.

Honesdale Fire Department, Seelyville Fire Department, and Honesdale EMS assisted State Police at the scene.

Honesdale Deputy Fire Chief Brian Dulay says they had just finished assisting at the Route 191 crash when they were called to a minor motor vehicle accident at 651 West Park Street.

They were just helping to clear that accident when the tones went off for an automatic fire alarm in the Woodland Estates on Route 191, South of Lake Ariel Highway.

Honesdale, Seelyville, Prompton, and White Mills responded.

Dulay said the call turned out to be burnt toast.
