Albion teens injured in crash

Medina Journal-Register — GAINES — Two Albion teenagers were hospitalized Thursday afternoon following a one-vehicle crash in the Town of Gaines.

The incident occurred shortly after noon in the 2900 block of Densmore Road, just south of Ridge Road. According to the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department, Jenny Lee Ettinger, 19, was operating a 2001 Chevrolet Tracker northbound on Densmore Road when she lost control of the vehicle.

The SUV crossed the center line and ran off the west side of the roadway into an apple orchard, coming to rest after hitting a tree. Ettinger was flown to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester by MercyFlight helicopter.

A male front seat passenger, identified as Austin J. Klein, 17, had to be extricated from the vehicle by Albion firefighters. He was transported to Strong by Central Orleans Volunteer Ambulance.

Ettinger was listed in satisfactory condition as of Thursday evening while Klein had already been treated and released.

Slippery road conditions and imprudent speed were contributing factors, according to the report issued by the Sheriff’s Department.
