Route 77 north into Orleans County being shut down for motor vehicle accident
Orleans County is working a motor vehicle accident on Route 77 and Alabama fire police have been dispatched to shut down northbound traffic at Roberts Road.
We have no further information on the actual accident.
UPDATE 7:16 p.m.: Alabama Fire Department asked to set up a landing zone for Mercy Flight.
UPDATE 7:42 p.m.: Two Mercy Flight helicopters have landed at the Alabama landing zone, but one needs to move to a location north of the accident because the roadway is impassible for the transport ambulance.
UPDATE 7:49 p.m.: Route 77 will be shut down for quite some time, according to an Alabama chief. Mercy EMS being dispatched to scene. One patient taken to Medina's hospital, the second bird sent to a Shelby landing location. It was a two-car head-on collision.
Correction: Though Route 77 is Alleghany Road through most of Genesee County, it stays Alleghany Road heading north at the intersection with Lewiston Road. At the intersection Route 77 jogs to the west. It's Route 63 (as a commenter points out) after the intersection of Alleghany and Lewiston. In this post, I transposed the dispatchers saying Alleghany Road to "Route 77" without realizing that section of Alleghany Road is actually Route 63.
If they are at Roberts Rd that is 63. 77 goes left at Alabama farms before Roberts Rd. Roberts is at start of wildlife refuge on 63.
Thanks for drawing my attention to that ... see the correction I posted.
No problem :-)
