SLOAN – One person was transported to the hospital after rolling his vehicle onto its side Friday evening in the Village of Sloan.

The crash happened just after 6:30 pm in front of 2133 Broadway.

It appears that a sports utility vehicle was traveling eastbound on Broadway went it left the road near Lackawanna Avenue.

Sloan Active Hose Chief Alan Wieberg tells Cheektowaga Chronicle that the vehicle traveled between a telephone pole and gas meter before crashing into a pickup truck parked near The “R” Bar and Grill.

The vehicle rolled onto the driver’s side sometime during the event.

Firefighters were dispatched to the crash scene to assist with extricating the male driver from the vehicle.  Mr. Wieberg says the driver made it out of the car under his own power.

He was transported to Erie County Medical Center by American Medical Response to be treated for unspecified non-life threatening injuries.

The Cheektowaga Police Department is investigating the cause of the crash.

Eastbound traffic on Broadway was reduced to one lane and shifted into the turning lane while emergency responders attended to the scene.
