A 19-year-old Cheektowaga woman was listed in serious condition today in Erie County Medical Center after a one-car crash Sunday in which she was the passenger, authorities said today.
Christine Schulz remained in the hospital's intensive care unit after the accident at about 5:15 a.m. Sunday on the eastbound Kensington Expressway, just east of the Thruway. Officer Timothy Sherer reported that the car sideswiped a guardrail.
Ms. Schulz was taken, in a semiconscious condition, from the back seat of the vehicle.
Cheektowaga police ticketed the driver, Danielle Czeka, 19, of Akron, for an unsafe lane change. She reportedly told police that she lost control of the vehicle after reaching down to adjust the car radio.
