If you were listening to local radio today, you know a section of Millersport was closed for quite a while today. It was because of an accident that according to the Buffalo News website inolved a Gasport woman...

A Gasport woman was seriously injured this morning in a collision between her car and a tractor-trailer on Millersport Highway, Amherst police reported.

Stephanie J. Verratti, 26, was driving south on Millersport, near Transit Road, shortly before 8 a.m. when her car jumped the median and went into the northbound lane, police said. The car was hit on the passenger side by a tractor-trailer driven by Michael P. Reisinger, 31, of Highland, Mich.

Verratti was removed from her car by members of the Swormville Fire Co. and initially taken by ambulance to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. She later was transferred to Erie County Medical Center; an update on her condition wasn't available.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation, police said, but it appears that icy conditions were a factor in the crash. No charges were filed.
