Early morning crash draws Mercy Flight on Route 33

BERGEN, N.Y. (WIVB) — A host of first responders rushed to the scene of an early morning head-on collision in Genesee County.

Genesee County Sheriff’s Office officials say a work truck traveled over the median line at the intersection of Route 33 and West Bergen Road, hitting another vehicle head-on at 7:27 a.m.

Officials say the driver of the work vehicle was uninjured, but the victim — a 66-year-old — suffered serious injuries and needed to be extricated from his Chevrolet Impala.

The victim was flown to Strong Memorial Hospital via Mercy Flight.

Investigation is ongoing, but police say drugs and alcohol are not a factor.
