KENDALL — An 80-year-old Waterport woman was hospitalized after she crashed her car into a tree Friday morning on the 15500 block of Roosevelt Highway, just east of Transit Road, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office said.

Just before 11 a.m., Norma J. Webster failed to negotiate a curve and lost control of her eastbound 2004 Buick. The sedan ran off the south side of the roadway and struck a tree, authorities said.

Webster, the vehicle’s sole occupant, was trapped for about 45 minutes as Kendall firefighters worked to extricate her from the wreckage. Mercy Flight transported her to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.
