Sabrina Livermore, 26, the Rome woman who has been charged with second degree vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated after allegedly causing a three-car accident on State Rte. 14 near Randall Crossing Road July 17 is scheduled to re-appear in Milo Town Court Aug. 28.

Livermore appeared Aug. 14 with her attorney, Edward Fiandach of Rochester before Town Justice Michael Christensen.

Yates County District Attorney Valerie Gardener said she has not received the toxicology report from the investigation conducted by New York State Police, so she requested the extension to Aug. 28.

Christensen continued bail, denying Fiandach’s request to release the bail, $10,000 cash/$20,000 secured bond. He said he agreed that Livermore is not a flight risk, but considering the seriousness of the charges, the bail is reasonable.

According to State Police, Livermore was driving a vehicle west on Randall Crossing Road, and failed to negotiate a curve in the road. Her vehicle crossed a grassy area, struck railroad tracks crossing Rte. 14, and collided with two vehicles — one traveling north and one traveling south.

A passenger in the northbound vehicle, Roxane E. Meier, 55, of Dundee, was pronounced dead at the scene. Five other people, including three in Livermore’s vehicle, were treated at area hospitals.
