Kuhn was trapped in the wreckage for more than two hours before being freedby volunteer firefighters. He was flown to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester by Mercy Flight.

Kuhn’s two daughters, ages 12 and 13, were able to free themselves from the wreckage and were taken to Strong by ambulance, with injuries described as non-life threatening.

Slippery road conditions and imprudent speed were contributing factors in the crash, according to deputies, who were assisted by state troopers.

The crash occurred shortly after 7 p.m.
