Woman killed in head-on crash after attempting to pass car

A Churchville woman was killed in a head-on collision Monday evening at State Route 19 and Randall Road in the Town of LeRoy, according to the Genesee County Sheriff's Office.

Bonnie B. Dean, 77, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Genesee County Coroner's Office.

Dean's 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt collided with a 2013 GMC Terrain driven by Penne M. Vincent, 56, of Fairport, said deputies, who responded to a 911 call at 7:31 p.m. Vincent was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.

According to deputies, Dean was traveling south on Route 19 when she attempted to pass a vehicle on the right which was waiting to turn left onto North Road. Dean went off the west shoulder of Route 19 and then was unable to maintain control, deputies said, causing her vehicle to travel across the southbound lane into the northbound lane, where the vehicle struck Vincent's GMC Terrain head-on.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
