Two Orleans County teens are hospitalized after officials say slippery road conditions and imprudent speed lead to a one-car crash today.
The driver, 19-year-old Jenny Ettinger and passenger, 17-year-old Austin Klein, were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. The Sheriff’s Office says just after noon today the two were driving on Densmore Road in the Town of Gaines, Orleans County, when Ettinger lost control of the vehicle. The SUV crossed the center line and ran off the road into an apple orchard. It came to rest after being impaled by a tree.
Strong Memorial says Ettinger is under evaluation and Klein has been discharged.
