Two people suffered serious injuries in an afternoon crash in the Orleans County Town of Gaines.

Sheriff's deputies say the crash happened shortly after 12 p.m. Thursday on Densmore Road just south of State Route 104.

Police say Jenny Ettinger, 19, lost control of her SUV while traveling north. The vehicle left the road, where police say it was impaled by an apple tree.

Ettinger was flown by Mercy Flight to Strong Hospital. A passenger in the SUV, Austin Klein, was trapped in the wreckage. Firefighters used the jaws of life to free Klein, 17, who was also transported to Strong Hospital.

Police say slick roads and speed are believed to have played a role in the crash. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
