Police confirmed that the overturned car contained an elderly couple who were being removed by EMS and Fire crews. Tire tracks could be seen in the grass leading up to the tree, which was stripped of bark in a large patch facing the road.
“She’s conscious and breathing,” said relieved Avon Police Officer Matthew McFadden as a woman was being extracted from the vehicle. “She’s in much better shape than she could’ve been.”
Though it had been raining in Geneseo, Rochester Road was completely dry at about 5:30 when the accident occurred.
On the scene, police were looking for evidence of a blown tire which could have been a factor in the crash.
Fire crews were also on hand to guide traffic on Rochester Road while the victim was being extracted.
