ALBION – A two-car accident resulted in minor injuries at about 6:45 p.m. on Route 31A, just east of Route 98.

Albion firefighters and Orleans County Sheriff’s deputies were on scene, along with Central Orleans Volunteer Ambulance. COVA personnel were examining a woman who complained of pain in her wrist and arm.

(Katelynne Klossner wrote on the Orleans Hub Facebook page that she was in the accident and suffered a broken arm. Her car was also totaled, she said.)

The accident is under investigation. The slippery roads were likely a factor. Orleans County dispatch said a few drivers slid off the roads today when temperatures were either below 0 or in the single digits. It was 2 degrees out when firefighters, COVA and law enforcement responded to this call.
