Three sisters were hospitalized this morning following a one-car rollover crash in Orleans County.
The accident happened shortly after 7:30 this morning in the 2800 block of Knowlesville Road in the Town of Ridgeway.
The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office reported that Kayla M. Strickland, 18, of Albion was operating a 2005 Ford sedan in a northbound direction on Knowlesville Rd. Deputies said the car ran off the east side of the highway, into a filed, and overturned, coming to rest on its side.
Kayla’s twin sisters, Laura and Lilly Strickland, 16, also of Albion were passengers in the car.
All three girls had to be extricated from the wreckage by Ridgeway firemen.
Kayla was flown to Strong Memorial Hospital by Mercy Flight. The twins were taken to Medina Hospital by ground ambulance.
Deputies said that at the time of the crash the girls were returning home from an overnight activity at their church. Kayla told deputies that she fell asleep at the wheel. There does not appear to be any other contributing factors in the accident, deputies said.
