PHELPS, N.Y. (AP) - State police have released the names of the three people killed in a three-vehicle collision on a rural western New York road.

Troopers say 71-year-old Richard Rhinevault of Geneva was driving on state Route 14 in the Ontario County town of Phelps shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday when he failed to stop at a stop sign at an intersection.

His car struck a sport utility vehicle driven by a 33-year-old woman from Wolcott. Troopers say the impact sent the SUV into the path of a pickup truck driven by 56-year-old Mary Heidenreich of Lyons.

Heidenreich was killed along with two passengers in the SUV, 77-year-old Robert Abbott and 51-year-old Kent Frazer, both from Lyons.

The injured SUV driver was treated at a Rochester hospital. Rhinevault wasn’t injured.

Troopers say their investigation is continuing.
