Troopers said Hall was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way. Hall, along with passengers Elizabeth Bushey, Olivia Hall, and Tiana Hall were transported to Massena Memorial Hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries and released the same day. Halle Lazore, a passenger in Whites vehicle, was taken to Alice Hyde Medical Center, where she was treated for unspecified injuries and later released.
