They say a vehicle rolled over and that a man was thrown from that vehicle.
Both westbound lanes were shut down to allow a Mercy Flight helicopter to land so that the man could be flown to Erie County Medical Center. We're told the man suffered head and upper body injuries. His current condition is not known.
A woman was also taken by ambulance to another area hospital to be checked out.
