TOWN OF LOCKPORT — The victim of an accident on South Transit Road this morning is in critical condition at Erie County Medical Center.

According to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, the injured party, a 22-year-old male, was operating a Dodge Durango northbound alongside a semi truck-trailer as he attempted a U-turn directly in front of the semi's path.

At the time of impact, the semi was in the inner northbound lane with the SUV attempting the U-turn from alongside it. A collision resulted near the center of the four-lane highway with both vehicles continuing off the road on the west side.

The driver of the SUV had to be extricated using the "jaws of life" device by Wendelville Vol.Fire Co. under the direction of Chief Joel Maerten. Once removed, the SUV driver was flown by Mercy Flight to ECMC for treatment in critical condition.

The driver of the semi reportedly had approximately ten thousand pounds in the loaded trailer, no injuries were indicated by the semi operator.

NCSO accident reconstruction team was dispatched to scene along with crime scene identification unit. The investigation is continuing.
