Woman seriously injured in West Seneca crash

An unidentified woman was in the trauma intensive care unit of Erie County Medical Center Saturday evening after being seriously hurt in a two-car crash at Union and Town roads in West Seneca.

She was one of four people taken to ECMC in ambulances after the crash just before 1 p.m. Saturday. West Seneca Lt. Michael Poleon said in a news release that a vehicle traveling south on Union Road crossed three lanes of traffic and smashed head-on into a northbound vehicle, in which the injured woman was a back-seat passenger.

Traffic was blocked at the intersection for three hours.

Union Fire Company Assistant Chief Peter Stachowski said the other three victims suffered minor injuries. Poleon confirmed their lives are not in danger. Three Rural/Metro ambulances and one from the Vigilant Fire Company took the injured persons to ECMC.

The names of those involved will not be released until family members are notified, Poleon said. He added that charges may be filed, pending a further investigation.
