Deputies say a man was trapped in an SUV for more than 2 hours, after a crash in Orleans County Friday night. It happened shortly after 7:00 p.m.

The Orleans County Sheriff's Office says Scott A. Kuhn of Holley was driving an SUV on Lynch Road near the Falls Railroad Crossing when he apparently lost control. Deputies say the SUV went off the south side of the road, and down a slight embankment. Then, the SUV rolled over, and hit a tree.

Investigators say Kuhn was trapped in the wreckage for about 2 hours and 20 minutes before he was extricated by firefighters. News10NBC is told he was flown to Strong Memorial Hospital by Mercy Flight. His condition is unknown at this time.

Deputies say Kuhn's daughters, ages 12 and 13, were passengers in the SUV.  Deputies say they freed themselves, and were taken to Strong by Monroe Ambulance. Deputies say their injuries are not life threatening.

Investigators say speed and road conditions played a role in the crash.
