Rollover Accident Causes Traffic Jam

HAMBURG, NY (WKBW) A car "T"-boned a van at the intersection of McKinley Parkway and Milestrip Road after 10a.m. Saturday.

A police spokesperson tells Eyewitness News a van was trying to enter the McKinley Mall parking lot, when the driver ran a red light.

The van was hit by a compact car driving through a green light on Milestrip Road. The impact caused the van to flip onto its side, and extrication tools were required to free at least one person from the vehicle.

At least one of the van's occupants was taken from the scene in an ambulance, but officials on the scene say there were no serious injuries.

Police and emergency crews had to shut down most of the intersection for about an hour Saturday morning to clear debris from the scene and investigate the crash. The closure congested traffic over a large stretch of both roads.

It is unknown at this time whether charges will be filed against either driver.
