A woman in her mid-20s had part of a finger severed after her hand got stuck in a piece of machinery -- we did not hear what kind. Pembroke and Indian Falls fire departments are responding along with Mercy Medics and law enforcement.
The location is said to be near the Flying J Travel Center, north of the Thruway overpass, by a trail. She is roadside. Her left index finger is completely severed at the first knuckle and the ring finger is partically severed at "the last knuckle."
UPDATE 5:57 p.m.: The patient is being transported to Erie County Medical Center. Pembroke and Indian Falls are back in service.
UPDATE 7:50 p.m.: According to a reader, the woman was on a four-wheeler that was towing another four-wheeler with a rope. The woman got her hand caught in the rope.
