One-Car Hamden MVA Results in Minor Injuries

HAMDEN - At approximately 4:40 p.m. on Friday afternoon, Aug. 3, Delaware County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a rollover accident on Covert Hollow Road in the town of Hamden that resulted in the 18 year-old driver, Lilliana Bevilacqua of Franklin.

Bevilacqua was traveling on Covert Hollow Road when she lost control of her vehicle on a curve due to excessive speed. Her car then entered a ditch, struck a tree and overturned several times. The driver was able to exit her vehicle and walk to a nearby residence to call 911. Delhi Emergency Squad responded and transported Bevilacqua to O’Connor Hospital in Delhi for treatment of an arm injury.

Following the investigation, Deputies issued Bevilacqua traffic summonses for speed not reasonable and imprudent, failure to keep right, and making an unsafe lane change and directed her to appear in the Hamden Town Court on a later date to answer those charges.

Deputies were assisted at that accident scene by members of the Delhi Fire Department and NYC DEP Police.
