GREAT VALLEY – A Great Valley woman died early Saturday from injuries suffered in a Friday night car crash near her home.

The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office said Teresa M. Bergeron, 34, of Humphrey Road, died in Erie County Medical Center, where she was taken after the wreck at 6:18 p.m. Friday. Her two children, who were passengers in the vehicle, Brianna, 4, and Carley, 2, were released after treatment in Olean General Hospital.

The Sheriff’s Office said Bergeron’s 2013 Toyota was southbound on Route 219 when it did not stop at a four-way stop sign at the intersection with Humphrey Road, ran off the road and crashed into a pine tree. The woman was transferred from Olean General to ECMC, where she died about 1 a.m.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the Sheriff’s Office accident reconstruction team and criminal investigation bureau.
