Accident sends cars into ditch on 190N

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two cars ended up in a ditch alongside the I-190 northbound near exit 23 after an accident Friday morning.

Police say one driver attempted to pass the other, but didn’t negotiate the turn well, hitting the back of the car the driver attempted to pass. The collision sent both cars off the side of the road, however police say the accident caused no major injuries.

An elderly couple and another woman all were brought to a local hospital to be checked out as a precaution.

News 4 crews on the scene noted a maroon car and a silver car being pulled out of the ditch by tow trucks.

Traffic on the northbound I-190 was backed up for a time due to the accident, but by 11 a.m., the traffic flow normalized again.
