post by Howard Owens in batavia, accident

A vehicle that was the subject of an erratic driver report has apparently crashed in the area of 1669 Main Road, Corfu.

As dispatchers were relaying description and direction information to a responding deputy, the caller informed a dispatcher that the car went off the roadway.

The car reportedly crossed to the north side of Main Road and took out a utility pole, according to a first responder, then crossed back to the south side and struck a tree and rolled over.

The driver is out of the vehicle and appears to have suffered only minor injuries.

Twin Cities ambulance medics were passing by at the time of the accident and are evaluating the patient.

East Pembroke Fire Department and Mercy EMS responding.

Route 5 is being shutdown at Route 77 with Indian Falls responding for traffic control.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation though DeFelice said it appears one vehicle failed to yield the right-of-way to another vehicle on a left-hand turn.

Two of those injured were pedestrians, though DeFelice said it's unclear at this point whether they were on the crosswalk or sidewalk and whether they were struck by a vehicle or by debris.

DeFelice said a press release with more details will be issued this afternoon. This story will be updated with additional details as they become available.
