SHELBY – An Albion woman escaped serious injury last night after being struck by a pick-up truck in the town of Shelby.

The incident occurred at about 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 31 in the 11800 block of Maple Ridge Road (State Route 31-A).

Amber S. Holloway, 22, was crossing the road when she was struck by a westbound pick-up operated by David C. Erway, 27, of Albion.

Holloway was transported by Medina Fire Department ambulance to Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo where she was treated, and released shortly before 2 this morning. Erway was not injured.

The incident occurred in a section of highway where there is no artificial lighting. Holloway told deputies that she was walking home after consuming alcohol at a private residence. Neither alcohol nor unsafe speed on the part of Erway were contributing factors.

The incident was investigated by Deputy D.S. Klips, assisted by Lieutenant R.E. Perry.
