HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WROC) — A 55-year-old woman from Rochester is in critical condition after a crash involving a tractor trailer on 1225 Jefferson Road Sunday evening.

According to authorities, the woman attempted to make a left turn onto Jefferson Road from a plaza parking lot but drove in front of a tractor trailer in doing so.

The trailer, driven by a 54-year-old man, took evasive action but struck the driver’s side of the SUV driven by the woman. Police say the SUV then slid into a telephone pole before stopping.

Monroe County deputies say they found the woman trapped and severely injured. First responders removed her from the vehicle before she was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital.

Investigators reported the woman remains in critical condition.

During the investigation, police determined the driver of the trailer followed all New York State traffic laws. He was not injured.
