Local News

PARMA, N.Y. (WROC) — Officials say a two-vehicle crash in the area of W. Ridge Road and Hinkleyville Road in the Town of Parma Sunday night has left five people hospitalized.

Monroe County Sheriffs closed the area between Hinkleyville Road and Clarkson Parma Townline Road as crews worked to clear the scene. The area has since reopened.

Deputies say one of the cars crossed over the center line and crashed head-on into a car in the opposite lane. It’s unknown why the driver crossed lanes. Firefighters say they had to use the jaws of life to get some of the passengers out of the vehicles.

“It appears the eastbound car crossed the center line and struck the westbound car head-on and flipped,” said Lt. Pete Zambuto with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. “And once they get their equipment out of the way we’ll take pictures and measurements to complete the investigation, but we have a technician on scene.”

There are currently no details available on the condition of any of the people hospitalized.

This is a developing story, News 8 will provide updates as they become available.
