CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – Union Road southbound was shut down for around an hour Tuesday night while emergency services attended to a rollover crash.

The accident happened just after 9 p.m. at the intersection of Union Road and Wellworth Place.  The driver of an SUV told Cheektowaga Police that he swerved to avoid hitting another car, lost control, and rolled over onto his roof.

He was examined by an AMR ambulance crew but did not go to the hospital.

Union Road southbound was shut down to traffic at Genesee Street while northbound traffic was reduced to one lane.

U-Crest firefighters, AMR, and Cheektowaga Police attended to the scene.
