A Utica woman is in stable condition following a two-vehicle accident this morning at the intersection of Route 365 and Route 26 in Rome.

Oneida County Sheriff’s Deputies say 50-year-old Elssy Vintimilla was southbound on the Route 26 ramp and was crossing the eastbound lanes of Route 365 when her SUV was hit by an eastbound pickup being driven by 33-year old Andrew Gardner of Oneida.

Although the extent of her injuries is not known, Vintimilla was airlifted to SUNY Upstate Medical center in Syracuse, where she’s in stable condition.

The investigation is continuing and no tickets have been issued.

The eastbound lanes of Route 365 in Rome from Henderberg Road to Route 26 were closed for about two hours while the crash scene was being processed.

The same portion of Route 365 has since been re-opened to all traffic.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office was assisted on scene by members of the City of Rome Fire Department, New York State Department of Transportation, AmCare ambulance and Mercy Flight.
