Two drivers were hospitalized Wednesday morning after a nine car "chain reaction" collision on Grand Island.

Grand Island Fire Company rescue personnel responded to the accident in the south bound lane of the North Grand Island bridge.

According to Deputy Fire Chief Mark Sadkowski, slippery roads during morning rush hour traffic were a factor.

Firefighters say Ashley Luzak, 25, of Lewiston was treated by Twin City Ambulance medics and taken to Niagara Falls Medical Center for additional care.

Authorities Christina Rice, 43, of Niagara Falls, was evaluated by GIFC EMTs and taken by TCA to DeGraff MMC.

Officials say Ellen Hutton, 59, of North Tonawanda was also evaluated by GIFC EMTs for minor injuries, but refused further care.

There was extensive property and vehicle damage, but not other injuries were reported.
