ALBION – Four people have been taken to the hospital following a two-car accident at one of Albion’s most dangerous intersections.

The accident happened about 3:40 p.m. at the Gaines Basin Road and Albion-Eagle Harbor Road intersection, the scene of fatal collisions in the past.

The passenger in one of the vehicles was trapped, and Albion firefighters needed to remove the windshield and top of the car to free the person, who was then taken by Mercy Flight helicopter.

Central Orleans Volunteer Ambulance transported two people and Medina Fire Department ambulance took another. No other information is available.

After this accident, first responders were also dispatched to a two-car accident on Route 31A in Albion between Lewis and Culver roads, and an accident on Ridge Road in the Town of Murray near Ridge Mobile Estates.
