KENDALL – A Holley teen-ager is hospitalized in satisfactory condition after crashing her car this morning in the Town of Kendall.

The incident occurred shortly after 6 a.m. in the 1000 block of Monroe-Orleans County Line Rd., just north of Kenmore Rd.

Lauren A. Hennekey, 18, was traveling north when she lost control of the 1997 Honda sedan she was operating. The vehicle crossed the center line and ran off the west side of the roadway at which point it struck a ditch and became airborne.

Upon re-impacting the ground, the vehicle overturned several times, ejecting Hennekey, who was the sole occupant. The car came to rest on its roof.

Hennekey was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester by Hamlin Ambulance Corps. Kendall Fire Department and Monroe Ambulance personnel assisted at the scene as well as Morton firefighters. A Monroe County Sheriff’s K-9 team also assisted Orleans deputies in checking the area for any other potential victims.

The incident was investigated by Deputy J.J. Cole, assisted by Deputy M.C. Mele. While that investigation is continuing, it does appear that excessive speed was a contributing factor. Charge(s) against Hennekey are pending her recovery.
