Avoid Thruway, white-out conditions; accident westbound near Batavia exit

There's a motor-vehicle accident with injuries on the Thruway in the westbound lane about a half-mile from the Batavia exit (mile marker 389 and a half, east of the Route 48 interchange). Emergency crews are responding.
Reader Dan Jones unfortunately is driving on the Thruway and called to say: "Tell your readers to stay the hell off the road."
Also, there's a car off the road at Pearl and Lover's Lane.
And intermittant power outages are wreaking havor with some communications, including being able to book people at the jail.
You know it's bad weather when a responder tells dispatch: "I think I'm on location."
