UPDATE: One in NW crash still hospitalized
(ABC 6 News) – Rochester police confirmed Monday that a driver in Wednesday’s northwest Rochester crash is still hospitalized.
The 68-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries after a two-vehicle crash in northwest Rochester Wednesday, Sept. 7.
Her passenger, a 43-year-old woman, was also taken to St. Marys Hospital with unknown injuries.
The identities of all parties have not be released so that Rochester law enforcement can notify their family members.
The crash happened just after 6 p.m. in the intersection of 11th Avenue NW and West Center Street.
A 26-year-old woman in a Subaru traveling south on 11th Ave. collided with the older women’s Ford Escape, traveling west on West Center Street.
The Ford Escape tipped over.
Rochester Fire Department extracted both women from the second vehicle. The 68-year-old driver was initially responsive, Rochester police reported, but became unresponsive on scene.
“The community comes together in an emergency, and having an unfortunate incident like this take place in the center of a neighborhood with the fact that people come out of their home and want to help their fellow human being is just a testament to the people that we have in Rochester that they want to come and help people in distress,” said Rochester Police Captain Jon Turk.
The Forensic Mapping Unit is working to determine what happened.
On Thursday morning, Rochester police said preliminary investigations indicated that the 26-year-old woman had run a red light.
There was no evidence of impairment in either party, police reported.
