Injured man’s condition improves

ALBION – A 50-year-old Holley man trapped in the front passenger seat of a car that crashed into trees Sunday afternoon and landed in an embankment in the Town of Ridgeway was upgraded to fair condition at the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo Monday evening.

Emmit R. Weese, and the driver of the car, Austin D. Winters, 16, of Media, both suffered what Orleans County sheriff deputies had described as life-threatening injuries when their car crashed along Horan road about 5 p.m. Sunday. Winters was airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester but information on his current medical condition was unavailable Monday evening. Deputies said Weese was the registered owner of the vehicle involved in the one-car crash.
