ROYALTON, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two children were rushed to Children’s Hospital by Mercy Flight on Monday morning when a mother fell asleep at the wheel, crashing the car.
Officers rushed to Rochester Road where the driver nodded off, driving off the road and flipping the car several times before stopping in the yard of a Royalton home. Officers rushed the 27-year-old mother to the hospital, then called Mercy Flight to rush a 1-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy to the emergency room.
The children suffered various injuries, including head and neck injuries. The mother sustained abdominal and chest injuries.
Charges are pending the outcome of an accident investigation.
