WOMAN HOSPITALIZED WHEN CAR RUNS INTO TREE

A Genesee Street woman was injured Wednesday when she lost control of her car on Dorchester Road in the Town of Lockport and hit a tree head-on, Sheriff's Deputy Todd Ostrowski said.

Karen A. Newell, 48, was listed in fair condition in Lockport Memorial Hospital with chest injuries, a hospital official said.

The accident occurred at 2:54 p.m. when Newell, driving east on Dorchester Road about 500 feet east of South Transit Road, tried to grab on object on the passenger seat, lost control of her car, left the road, hit a mailbox and crashed into the tree, Ostrowski said.
