CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – A woman was transported to the hospital after she crashed into a wooden utility pole and couldn’t remember how it happened Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened just after 1:30 pm on Walden Avenue near Hedwig Avenue.

A law enforcement source at the scene said the driver told the police that she doesn’t know how the crash happened because she couldn’t remember anything after turning onto Walden Avenue from Bailey Avenue.

The driver was transported to Erie County Medical Center for treatment by an AMR ambulance.

Rescue firefighters attended to the scene.
