A 71-year-old Cattaraugus County woman was pronounced dead Wednesday at the scene of a two-car collision on Route 219, according to Orchard Park Police.

The name of the victim was not released, nor that of a 58-year-old Springville woman who was taken to the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo by the Orchard Park Fire Comany with non-life threatening injuries. Police said the accident occurred at 1:24 p.m. near the Big Tree Road exit ramp. Each car involved in the accident was occupied by a single driver with no passengers. Route 219 was closed to northbound traffic at Route 391 by State Police during the accident investigation.

The Erie County Medical Examiner’s office responded to the scene, as did the West Seneca Police Department Accident Investigation Unit.
