GAINES – An 18-year-old girl from Holley is hospitalized with serious injuries this morning following a one-car crash in the town of Gaines, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department reported.

The incident occurred at about 5 a.m. in the 2300 block of Eagle Harbor-Waterport Road. A 1993 Subaru 4-door sedan, operated by Jillian Marie Troy (sole occupant), was traveling north when the operator apparently lost control of the vehicle. The car travelled across the center line and ran off the west side of the roadway. The vehicle then struck a concrete bridge structure that carries the roadway over Otter Creek.

Troy was extricated from the heavily damaged vehicle by Albion and Carlton firefighters. Central Orleans Volunteer Ambulance personnel were also at the scene. Troy was flown by Mercy Flight helicopter to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, where she remains in guarded condition.

The incident was investigated by Deputy M.C. Mele, Sergeant D.E. Draper Jr., Investigator C.L. Black, and Chief Deputy T. L. Drennan.  The investigation is continuing.
