A horrific head-on collision Thursday evening in Pembroke, New York, resulted in three people being airlifted to area hospitals.
The accident occurred around 5 p.m. when a 30-year-old woman who was traveling south on Indian Fall Road in her 2002 Chevrolet Blazer crossed over into the northbound lane and hit a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado driven by a 70-year-old Oakfield man head-on.
Both drivers had to be extracted from their vehicles by rescue crews and then airlifted to medical care.
Three children—ages 1, 2, and 6—were inside the SUV during the crash. The youngest two children were taken by ambulance to United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia, and the 6-year-old was airlifted to Women & Children’s Hospital in Buffalo.
Today the female driver is in critical condition, the male driver is in guarded condition, and the 6-year-old is in the pediatric intensive care unit. The other two children remain hospitalized.
The Sheriff’s Office says everyone was wearing a seatbelt and that it is continuing to investigate the crash.
