State police say the driver of a southbound vehicle on State Route 332 failed to yield to the right of away and tried to turn left, striking a northbound vehicle passing through the intersection. 

A passenger in the northbound vehicle, 43-year-old Phoneouthith Homniyom of Rochester, was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital by Mercy Flight with serious injuries. She is in guarded condition as of Tuesday morning. 

The driver of the southbound vehicle, 59-year-old Eileen Taylor from Springfield, Pennsylvania, was taken to FF Thompson for injuries. The driver of the northbound vehicle, 46-year-old Phone Dumas from West Henrietta, was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with injuries, but has since been discharged.  

Five other passengers in the northbound vehicle -- 30-year-old Jutatip Pimparat from West Henrietta, 17-year-old Justin Homniyom from Rochester, 13-year-old Malatip Homniyom from Rochester, 12-year-old Leila Dumas from West Henrietta, 7-year-old Niran Dumas from West Henrietta--  were all taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for various injuries. 

News10NBC is working to find out the conditions of the younger victims.

Witnesses in the area said that while this is a notorious intersection for accidents, that this was the worst they'd seen.

"[I've never seen anything] this bad, at least not since I've been working around here," said Tyler Fischer, who works nearby. "I know this intersection, it's pretty big for high-speed accidents, but this is definitely the worst thing I've ever seen here."

The Ontario County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in finding a dog named Lily. Deputies say her and her family were involved in the crash. Lily was last seen running behind CVS towards Collett Road. She was wearing a pink collar and leash, although her collar has a different name on it as she is a new addition to the family.

Anyone with information on Lily's whereabouts is asked to call 911 or the Ontario County Humane Society at (585) 396-4590.
