MAYFIELD - A collision at the intersection of Nine Mile Tree and Turkey Farm roads caused a sport-utility vehicle to roll over, sending one of its six passengers to the hospital Sunday afternoon.

State Police Trooper D.J. Klingbeil said a Ford van traveling north on Nine Mile Tree Road (Route 29A) didn't stop at a stop sign, colliding with a Chevrolet Blazer heading west on Turkey Farm Road, causing the Blazer to roll over once. It landed upright on the side of Turkey Farm Road in a wooded area around 3:45 p.m.

Three adults and three children were riding in the two-door Blazer. One adult passenger was transported to Albany Medical Center in critical condition, Klingbeil said.
