During rush hour on Thursday, Rush Fire/Rescue and Ambulance was dispatched to a call on I-390 for a vehicle crash. While the first responders were on their way, they got word that another vehicle had been hit by a car that was going south in the northbound lane.
The Rush crews stopped at the first crash, where the male operator of the car told them he was OK. Continuing south, they came across a vehicle carrying four people that had been knocked off the road. The occupants told Rush EMS that they were okay, but a green car hit them going south in the northbound lane.
Rush EMS continued south almost 2 miles, where they found the car that had caused all the trouble sitting sideways in the median. The driver said she was diabetic and that low blood sugar caused her to drive erratically.
She was wearing her seat belt and her air bags had deployed. Henrietta Ambulance took her to Strong Memorial Hospital.
The Rush FD ambulance took one of the people from the second car to Strong for a back injury.
Monroe County Sheriff's Deputies were investigating the incident.
