BATAVIA – A Batavia woman sustained minor injuries after the 1998 Ford Windstar van she was driving flipped over in a three-car crash Saturday night at the intersection of Randall Road and Fabyan Parkway.

Renee Vilmin, 65, of Batavia was charged with disobeying a traffic control device and driving an uninsured motor vehicle, Batavia Police Detective Kevin Bretz said on Monday. Vilmin was taken to an area hospital for minor injuries, Bretz said.

Others involved in the crash refused medical treatment, Bretz said.

The crash happened at 9:10 p.m. Saturday at Randall Road and Fabyan Parkway. According to Bretz, Vilmin was driving westbound on Fabyan, approaching the intersection, and drove through a red light while making a left turn.

A 2002 Dodge Dart was headed southbound on Randall when it struck the passenger side of the Windstar van being driven by Vilmin. Bretz said the driver of the Dodge Dart had the right-of-way.

The Windstar van then flipped over and slid into a 2002 Ford Explorer. The driver of that vehicle, Godolfredo Gomez-Alvarez, 47, of Aurora was cited for not having a valid drivers license.
