At approximately 8:45 p.m. on March 23, troopers were dispatched by Madison County 911 to a 2 car crash at the intersection of State Route 31 and State Route 13 in the Town of Lenox. The accident investigation revealed that a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado operated by Jesse N.

The Marion vehicle struck a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu travelling northbound on Route 13 operated by Elizabeth M. Scott, age 26, of Blossvale, N.Y. Scott was transported to Upstate Hospital in Syracuse by Greater Lenox Ambulance for treatment of a head injury. Marion and a 44 year old male passenger were transported by Vineall Ambulance to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Utica for evaluation. Two smoking pipes containing drug residue which tested positive for methamphetamine and marijuana were discovered in the Marion vehicle.
