Three people injured, two needing helicopter transport, in accident on West Main Street, Batavia

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, accident.

Two people were taken to regional hospitals by Mercy Flight after an accident at 2:40 p.m. on West Main Street at the turn-in for Valu Plaza.

Both people, the driver of one car and his passenger, had non-life-threatening injuries. The driver was taken ECMC and the passenger to Strong Memorial Hospital.

A third person, the driver of a red Chevy Avalanche involved in the crash, was taken to Strong by Mercy EMS.

Reportedly, the driver of a blue Chevy Aveo was making a left-hand turn from the westbound lane into Valu Plaza. He allegedly pulled in front of the red Avalanche.

City and Town of Batavia fire departments responded and Sheriff's deputies are investigating the accident.

Aveo meets Avalanche...Avalanche wins. I'm sticking with my Silverado 2500HD. Hopefully everyone pulls through okay.

Actually Aveo won. The Avalanche driver was taken by Mercy Flight (Usually indicating life-threatening injury) and the driver and passenger of Aveo taken by Mercy EMS with non-threatening injuries.

John, not sure where you're getting your information from, but the driver of the Avalanche was taken by Mercy EMS (ground ambulance) to Strong. The two people in the Aveo were airlifted. And Mercy Flight doesn't per-se indicate lift threatening injuries, and authorities said none of the injuries appeared life threatening.

John, I think you need new glasses. The blue Aveo is FUBAR and the Avalanche might also be FUBAR, but it sure looks a whole lot better than the Aveo.

OMG, this was an accident that resulted in some serious injuries and all you two morons can do is argue over which vehicle won?

Seriously?

Ray, it's an observation. Whether it's verbalized or not, I'm pretty sure everyone evaluates many aspects of an accident when they see it. I'm pretty sure I said that I hope everyone pulls through okay.

My observation was actually for my own benefit, but I said what I was thinking so everyone could see it. I'll never drive an Aveo, that's for sure. Was I wrong for saying that or should I only comment on what's important to you? Just wondering...

We could talk about the collation between prius and aveo to liberal drivers. Maybe?

Howard, not sure where any info came from, but to set the record straight, the driver and passenger in the Aveo were both airlifted to ECMC. I was informed the driver of the Avalanche was taken to Strong via ground ambulance.
The driver and passenger in the Aveo, are in fairly good shape considering how bad the crash was.
Some broken bones, some surgury, and some rehab, and both should be allright in a couple of months.
The passenger in the Aveo was suppossed to be taken to Strong, but somehow ended up going to ECMC, despite the fact the medics were told to go to strong, as the patient has ties to that hospital, and recieves out-patient treatment at Strong.
