The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says three cars were involved in a deadly crash in Henrietta Thursday evening.

That crash happened on Jefferson Road near Route 390 around 6:40 p.m., according to deputies.

They say two cars were driving westbound on Jefferson Road, when the driver in the second trailing vehicle rear-ended the first vehicle. That pushed the first vehicle into the other lane, where it struck a third vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.

The driver of the first vehicle that was pushed into the opposite lane died as a result of the crash. No word yet on the injuries of the other drivers. Deputies say they believe the man in the second vehicle had been drinking prior to the crash.

We will continue to track this crash and will bring you more information when it's available.
