Two-car rollover accident reported near Pavilion Center
Submitted by Howard Owens on August 10, 2009 - 4:27pm
Emergency crews are responding to a possible serious-injury accident at Route 20 and Perry Road east of Pavilion Center.
Two cars are reportedly on their roofs and "multiple injuries" are reported. Mercy Flight is being dispatched.
UPDATE 5:00 p.m.: On scene. One Mercy Flight helicopter has left and at least one more, possibly two, on their way. A maroon minivan is on its side while a black compact car is now upright. Emergency crews are treating patients. There may be as many as five patients involved.
UPDATE 6:42 p.m.: There were six victims, all adults. Two in a sedan, and four in a minivan. Two were taken by Mercy Flight to area hospitals -- at least one to Strong, so the other probably to ECMC. Four other victims were taken by ground ambulance to Strong (possibily). Investigators on scene as of an hour ago had no idea how the accident occurred. They were just getting started with examining the scene. I'll post a couple of pictures after I get to tonight's City Council meeting. As for video, my camera is busted. It probably recorded fine, but now playback isn't working. Somebody is bringing me another camera tonight, but I probably won't be able to get any video up from the scene before the morning.
