Original post:
One person was injured Sunday morning when a vehicle apparently traveled off a bridge on Deer Creek Road in Genesee and landed in a creek. That section of highway is protected by Portville Emergency Services and firefighters and EMS responded to the scene. Initial reports indicated the person sustained multiple injuries to include a possible fractured leg. Mercy Flight was called to land at the Portville School. Once the patient was brought up from the creek and taken to the landing zone, Mercy Flight headed to ECMC in Buffalo. State police from Amity are investigating.
