Two men hurt after car goes down embankment

BARRE -- Two men were injured Thursday after a one-car accident on Spoll Bank Road, just east of White City Road on the Orleans-Genesee county line.

According to Orleans County sheriff's deputies, the car driven by 19-year-old Nicholas M. Scarborough of Oakfield went down an embankment and overturned Thursday afternoon. Scarborough was being evaluated Thursday night in Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, but no condition was listed.

A passenger in the vehicle, 22-year-old Lynn M. Kirchner, also of Oakfield, was taken by Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial, where he was listed in guarded condition in intensive care.

While no charges have been filed and police continue to investigate, they say excessive speed may have played a role.
