Driver injured after striking construction trailer parked in roadway
A 37-year-old Corfu resident was flown by Mercy Flight to ECMC yesterday morning after her car struck a parked construction trailer on Hopkins Road, Pembroke, at 8:18 a.m.
The trailer was parked partially in the roadway and it may have been difficult for Lori Schwab to see in the early morning sun as she came over a rise in a hill, according to investigators.
She was driving a 2009 Chevy sedan.
The trailer is registered to B&B Paving and Excavating, of Middleport. It wasn't attached to another vehicle at the time of the accident.
The owner was cited for alleged parking or standing on a main traveled paved roadway.
The accident was investigated by Deputy Kevin McCarthy.
