At about 3:25 p.m., just as the light was fading and sleet began to fall, a Honda Accord collided with a hefty SUV head-on, trapping both drivers in their respective vehicles.
Investigators on scene said that the driver of the SUV was quickly extracted by rescue teams first, then firefighters cut away the roof of the Honda to free the second driver, a process that took about half an hour.
Investigators added that poor weather likely played a large role in the accident and no tickets have been issued for any violations at this point, as it does not appear that either car was traveling at an excessive speed or that either driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Both drivers were rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.
Responding to the scene were multiple investigators with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, alongside the Conesus Fire Department, Livonia Fire and EMS, and Conesus Fire Department.
