By Lillian Browne

WALTON - An early morning head-on collision in Walton has sent four people to area hospitals, two in serious condition, according to Walton Fire Chief Bob Brown. Emergency crews were toned at approximately 6 a.m. just east of the intersection of Pines Brook Road and state Route 206, where two passenger sedans collided.

Walton emergency medical services requested airborne medical evacuation assistance, but helicopter crews were unable to respond due to weather conditions, Brown said.

All four occupants were transported by ambulance to area hospitals.

State Route 206 is closed in proximity to the collision, with New York State Department of Transportation officials en route to detour traffic, Brown said. New York State Police accident reconstruction teams are also en route to the scene, Brown said.

Delaware County Sheriff’s Patrol and Cooperstown Medical Transport assisted at the scene.
