Car flips over after accident on South Transit Rd. in Pendleton

PENDLETON, N.Y. (WIVB) — A serious crash forced the response of police and medical personnel in Niagara County Tuesday afternoon.

First responders rushed to the scene of a motor vehicle accident which left one car flipped over. Police say a red pickup truck drifted into the right lane of traffic, striking a black SUV on South Transit Road. The impact forced both cars to lose control, and the SUV struck a grey sedan which was stopped in a turning lane. That flipped the SUV onto its roof.

Officials say the accident caused injury, but didn’t specify how many people suffered injury. Several people were taken to the Erie County Medical Center.

The accident slowed traffic on the scene at South Transit and Dunnigan Roads, but officials couldn’t confirm if the road closed due to the accident.

An investigation is continuing into the incident, but police haven’t yet said if charges will be filed.
