The Orleans County Sheriff's Office was on the scene of a serious crash overnight in the town of Gaines.

Deputies were called to Gaines-Waterport Road around 2 a.m. for a report of the crash. Investigators say 45-year-old Felicia Gaddis was traveling southbound on the road when she lost control of her vehicle. The car crossed the center line and struck a utility pole. Deputies say the car then rolled over, and Gaddis was ejected from the vehicle. She was taken by Mercy Flight to Erie County Medical Center with serious injuries.

Officials say alcohol and speed were likely a factor in the crash. Charges against Gaddis are pending at this time.
