Man suffers medical episode, swerves across Transit Rd

LANCASTER, N.Y. (WIVB) – First responders were called to Transit Road near French Road in Lancaster following a one-car crash around 3:45 p.m. on Monday.

What was initially called a head-on crash was actually a single vehicle accident involving a 70-year-old man who police say suffered a medical episode. Incredibly, he swerved over three lanes of traffic but did not hit another vehicle.

After hitting a tree, the West Seneca man’s vehicle came to a rest in the entrance driveway to an apartment complex. Police say he was not responsive at the scene and was rushed by ambulance to St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Police continue to investigate and have not released the victim’s name. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
