MENDON, N.Y. (AP) _ State Police say five vehicles were involved in a Thruway crash late Monday afternoon that killed two people.
Authorities say an eastbound passenger vehicle apparently crossed the median and entered the westbound lanes, striking a tractor trailer and then three other vehicles. The tractor-trailer became fully engulfed in flames.
Troopers say the injuries to the other drivers and passengers involved range from minor to critical. Authorities have not released the identity of the victims.
Westbound lanes of the Thruway were closed for several hours and traffic was diverted off the highway at Exit 45 in Victor and allowed back on at Exit 46 in Henrietta.
