An Ontario County Sheriff’s Deputy suffered minor injuries in a crash at the intersection of County Road 4 and Freshour Road in the Town of Hopewell Sunday night.

Sheriff’s Deputies say 20-year-old Shane Dizmang of Lyons was headed south on Freshour Road when he stopped at the stop sign, entered the intersection then changed his mind and attempted to turn right. Deputy Bart Castle was west on County Road 4 at the time and both vehicles collided.

Dizmang and his 19-year-old passenger were not injured. Deputy Castle suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from the hospital.

Both vehicles suffered extensive damage and had to be towed from the scene.

Dizmang was issued a ticket for failure to yield the right of way and is due in Hopewell Town Court at a later date.
