A three-vehicle accident on Tuesday on Rt. 5 in Derby left one vehicle totaled, and a motorist with minor injuries. Police say Lisa Lafoe, 59, of Derby slowed down to yield to stopped traffic at a red light. Police say a vehicle operated by Nicole Gleason, 26, of Holland failed to yield to Lafoe, who was intending to come to a complete stop, and crashed into the rear end of Lafoe’s vehicle. The crash caused Lafoe’s vehicle to then continue in a south direction, resulting in a secondary crash with a vehicle operated by Moira Quirion, 35, of Derby. Police say that Gleason was operating unnecessarily close to Lafoe. Gleason reported non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to North Country Hospital. Lafoe and Quirion reported no injuries. Gleason’s vehicle was towed from the scene. Gleason was issued a ticket for following too closely.
