Possibly deaf woman taken to hospital after crashing truck

INDIAN FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) — A woman was hospitalized after driving her pick up truck into a ditch on Route 77 in Genesee County.

Genesee County Sheriff’s deputies say the woman fell in and out of consciousness when they arrived and found her.

She may have been deaf, as she attempted communication through sign language, according to sources.

It is not clear how badly the woman was injured, but she was taken to ECMC by Mercy Flight for treatment.

A couch that had been in the back of the truck she was driving was thrown during the crash. It ended up on the side of the road.

The Sheriff’s Office is trying to figure out what caused the crash.
