NORTH NORWICH – A five year-old boy is in “serious” condition after being ejected from a vehicle during a two-car collision on County Road 32 this morning, according to the New York State Police investigators.

The accident occurred at shortly after 7 a.m. just south of the DCMO BOCES Chenango Campus on County Road 32 in the Town of North Norwich. A 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Amanda Collins, 35, of Norwich, and an unmarked Norwich City Police vehicle driven by Chief Joseph Angelino were involved in the crash.

According to New York State Trooper Jamieson Tefft, Collins was heading South on County Road 32 when she lost control of her vehicle due to slippery road conditions and crossed into the northbound lane. The rear driver’s side of her vehicle crashed into the front of the NPD vehicle, which had been heading north. Angelino and Assistant Chief Dale Smith were both in the car, on their way to attend a conference in Utica.

Tefft said the boy, who had been in a child restraint in the rear passenger area of the Jeep, was ejected at the time of the crash. The child, along with Collins, Angelino and Smith, were transported to Chenango Memorial Hospital.
