MOUNT VERNON — Kirk A. Menapace, 18, of 19 Ames St., Mount Vernon, was cited for improper operation at stop sign in the collision Wednesday afternoon at the intersection of Ames and Newark Road.

According to the Mount Vernon Police report, Menapace was westbound on Ames about 3:20 p.m., and stopped at the intersection with Newark Road. He told police another driver motioned him to cross, but he didn’t see the southbound Chevrolet Equinox on Newark Road. The sport utility vehicle struck Menapace’s pickup truck broadside, causing the truck to roll onto its top in the yard at 901 Newark Road.

The driver of the Equinox, James R. Vanscyoc, 58, of 717 Sandusky St., Mount Vernon, and a passenger, Kara Vanscyoc, 60, same address, were taken to Knox Community Hospital with “non-incapacitating injuries.”
