Four people were sent to the hospital after a two car motor vehicle accident in the Town of Berne Saturday afternoon.

The Albany Sheriff’s Office responded to the intersection of State Route 443 and County Route 1 at around 4:25 p.m..

Both vehicles involved had two occupants with entrapment.  Police say that the first vehicle was traveling South on County Route 1 and failed to see a stop sign at the intersection.

The first vehicle traveled into the intersection at a high rate of speed and struck the second vehicle which was traveling Westbound on State Route 443.

The operator of the first vehicle, a 54-year-old female and the passenger, a 53-year-old male, both out of Selkirk were transported to Albany Medical Center Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The operator of the second vehicle, a 39-year-old female and the passenger, a 45-year-old male, both out of East Berne were also transported to Albany Medical Center Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The operator of the first vehicle was issued a citation for failure to stop at a stop sign.  Alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
