CHEEKTOWAGA – Cheektowaga Police accident investigators were called to the scene of an injury accident after one person suffered severe injuries.

Two vehicles collided around 8:15 pm Tuesday at the intersection of Transit and French Roads.  It appears one car broadsided the other.

South Line firefighters and AMR medics treated one person at the scene with severe injuries before being rushed to Erie County Medical Center for treatment.  A second patient was also transported to ECMC.  Several others were evaluated at the scene.

Southbound traffic on Transit Road was diverted down French Road while investigators recreated the crash.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known late Tuesday night.
