Community Honors Wheatland Crash Victims

(13WHAM) Caledonia, N.Y.-- On Wednesday night, about 200 people gathered to remember and pray for the victim's deadly crash in Wheatland.

Taylor Binnert, 21, and Chris Peterson, 20, both died when the car Binnert was driving was broadsided by a tractor trailer on Rt. 36 and North Road in Wheatland.

Investigators with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office believe Binnert entered the intersection not knowing that it was not a four-way stop.

Emily Peterson, Michela Murphy and Joanne Krutchen were passengers in the backseat. As of Wednesday night, they all remain hospitalized in guarded condition.

All the victims were Caledonia natives and graduates of Caledonia-Mumford High School.
