BUSTI — Three people were taken to the hospital following a rollover crash Monday afternoon.

The collision, according to the Lakewood-Busti Police Department, occurred at 3:10 p.m. at the intersection of Baker Street Extension and Howard Avenue in the town of Busti.

An investigation determined that the driver of a vehicle traveling south on Howard Avenue failed to stop at a stop sign and struck a westbound vehicle on Baker Street Extension.

The westbound vehicle, occupied by a married Jamestown couple, lost control following the collision and overturned before landing on its tires.

The couple, as well as a front seat passenger in the other vehicle, was transported to UPMC Chautauqua for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, Lakewood-Busti police said.

The driver of the southbound vehicle, identified as a 56-year-old Russell, Pa., resident, was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign.

Also responding to scene were firefighters from Busti, Celoron, Lakewood, Frewsburg and Kiantone. Chautauqua County EMS also assisted.

A portion of Baker Street Extension was closed to traffic due to the crash.
