Kiel A. Horner, 36, of Whitney Point, was issued tickets for failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield when entering an intersection, a state police official said Thursday.

The dump truck caused an accident involving two other vehicles, officials said.

Benjamin J. Hill, 51, of Cortland, and Anna Regula, 44, of Ithaca, were transported with injuries that are not life threatening to a nearby hospital in Dryden ambulances.

A Tompkins County 911 dispatcher said a helicopter was put on standby but not used during the incident. A state police sergeant also said a helicopter was not used.

The dump truck was seen flipped on its side on Johnson Road Tuesday evening while Hill’s 2006 Jeep and Regula’s 2012 Nissan were towed from the scene.

The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office, State Police, Bangs Ambulance, Dryden Ambulance and Dryden firefighters responded to the scene.
