The two-vehicle accident happened around 4:10 p.m. at the intersection of Westhaven Road and Elm Street Ext.

State Trooper Tom Perry said the accident appears to have happened when one of the drivers failed to yield at an intersection.

“It’s kind of a tricky intersection, especially when the sun sets here,” he said.

He confirmed that one driver was transported to Cayuga Medical Center in a Bangs Ambulance and the other driver was uninjured.

The Ithaca Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
