The passenger of the vehicle was ejected through the windshield after the truck hit the ditch and a driveway. The passenger was ejected about 25 feet, said Undersheriff Chris Bourke.
The passenger and the driver both sustained injuries. They were conscious and were able to speak with first responders. They were taken by Monroe Ambulance to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.
Bourke said a witness observed the truck, which was headed north on Kendall Road, drift off the road. Sheriff’s investigators will interview the driver and passenger at the hospital to try to determine what caused the accident, Bourke said.
