According to Oneida County Sheriff, Robert M. Maciol deputies from the Road Patrol responded to a single car MVA on Sconondoa Road in the Town of Verona around 11:25 PM on Friday night. The driver, Khin Kyi, 24 of Utica was operating a 2006 Subaru car going westbound when he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle crossed over the center of the roadway and struck a tree stump which caused the vehicle to go airborne and strike several smaller trees and a fence line. The vehicle became stuck in a tree when the occupants had to be extricated from the vehicle by the Verona Fire Department. Kyi was transported to Suny Upstate by Vineall Ambulance for serious but non-life threatening injuries. The front seat passenger, James Cornish, 24 of Canastota sustained serious injuries. Cornish was airlifted by Lifenet to Suny Upstate Hospital for his injuries. The crash is still under investigation and is being reconstructed by the Criminal Investigation Unit.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by members of the New York State Police, Verona Fire Department, Vineall Ambulance, and Lifenet.

The roadway was closed for crash reconstruction, and has now been reopened.
