An Albion woman escaped serious injury Tuesday night after being struck by a vehicle in the Town of Shelby, Orleans County sheriff’s officials said.

Amber S. Holloway, 22, was crossing Maple Ridge Road around 10:30 p.m. when she was struck by a westbound pickup truck operated by David C. Erway, 27, of Albion, Undersheriff Steve Smith said.

Holloway was transported by Medina Fire Department ambulance to Erie County Medical Center where she was treated and released early Wednesday while Erway was not injured, authorities said.

The incident occurred in an unlit portion of the roadway, Smith said.

Holloway told deputies she was walking home after consuming alcohol at a private residence, he said.

There was no indication that alcohol consumption or unsafe speed by the driver were contributing factors, Smith said.
