Medina Journal-Register

Medina Journal-Register — The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal motor vehicle accident that occurred Monday at 10:49 a.m. The accident occurred at the intersection of Oak Orchard Road and Roosevelt Highway in the Town of Carlton. 

Jessica Artica, 25, of Lyndonville, was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban north when she stopped at the y-intersection, then proceeded to cross into the path of an eastbound 1985 Peterbuilt dump truck operated by John Bush, 56, of Waterport. The truck is owned by Lynn-Ette and Son Farms of Kent. 

Artica was pronounced dead at the scene by Orleans County Coroner Joe Fuller and her body was removed to the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office. Bush was not injured in the accident.

There were no tickets issued to Mr. Bush. The accident remains under investigation. It appears that speed and alcohol were not a factor in the accident.

The sheriff’s office was assisted at the scene by Carlton FD, Albion FD, Central Orleans Volunteer Ambulance and New York State Police DOT Inspectors.
