ALBION – Three women remained hospitalized Monday after suffering injuries in four car crashes Sunday.
Three of the crashes were collisions, while one was a single-vehicle incident on a snow- and ice-covered roadway.
After one crash, Paula S. Woodward, 47, was ticketed by Orleans County sheriff’s deputies after her sport utility vehicle, headed west at about 11:30 a.m. on Mill Road in Ridgeway, drove through the intersection at Murdock Road and struck an SUV operated by Catherine J. Worrells, 18, of Lyndonville, deputies said. Worrells had been heading south on Murdock.
Worrells was treated and released at Eastern Niagara Hospital in Newfane, and Woodward was treated and released at Medina Memorial Hospital. Woodward’s son Thomas, 14, was unhurt.
Meanwhile, Dawn E. Carter, 45, of Kent, remained in satisfactory condition Monday at Rochester’s Strong Memorial Hospital. At about 5 p.m. Sunday, her northbound SUV collided head-on with a pickup truck operated by Amy L. Broskin, 34, of Kendall, on the Gaines Basin Road Bridge over the Erie Canal in the Town of Gaines. Neither Broskin nor her four children were hospitalized, but one of the children received medical treatment at the scene, deputies said. Deputies cited icy road conditions and poor visibility as contributing factors in the crash. No tickets were issued.
At about 5:15 p.m., on the Route 31 bridge over the Falls Railroad in Ridgeway, Connor A. Wolfe, 19, of Middleport, lost control of his SUV on the snow- and ice-covered roadway and crossed the center line into the path of the westbound SUV driven by Ronald L. Larson, 32, of Medina, deputies said. Wolfe’s vehicle overturned, and he had to be removed by Ridgeway firefighters. Wolfe and Larson both were treated and released at Medina Memorial Hospital.
Elizabeth Harmon, 29, of Barker, a passenger in Larson’s vehicle, was pinned in the vehicle for a short time and also had to be removed. She remained in satisfactory condition Monday at Strong Memorial Hospital.
Ashleigh L. Daniels, 25, of Kent, remained in serious condition Monday at Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo after she failed to negotiate a curve at about 9:15 p.m. Sunday in her westbound sedan on snow- and ice-covered Fletcher Chapel Road, about a half-mile west of Southwood Road in the Town of Shelby, deputies said. Daniels was injured when her car ran off the north side of the road and overturned. East Shelby firefighters assisted sheriff’s deputies at the scene of that crash.
