Car, truck collision in Pamelia sends three people to hospital


WATERTOWN — A Fort Drum woman and two other people were sent to Watertown and Syracuse hospitals following a two-vehicle collision between a jeep and a tractor-trailer Wednesday morning on Route 11 in the town of Pamelia.

Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies said two of the three occupants of the jeep were taken to Samaritan Medical Center by a Guilfoyle ambulance and the third person was flown to Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse, by a LifeNet helicopter for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Deputies said Asia M. Sumlin, of Fort Drum, was northbound on Route 11 when she crossed over the center line of the road trying to get a bug out of her car and struck a tractor-trailer operated by Robert H. Cummings, of Watertown, at about 6:30 a.m.

Mr. Cummings was not injured. Passengers of the jeep were 19-year-old Stephan L. Groce and 24-year-old Cleveland J. Moore Jr., no addresses given.

Mr. Groce is listed in fair condition at Upstate Medical Center, as of 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Sheriff’s deputies were assisted at the scene by state police and North Pole, Calcium and Adams Center fire departments.
