ORCHARD PARK, NY - A driver who had just given blood apparently became woozy and lost control of her vehicle before plowing into an Orchard Park spa, pinning an employee at her desk and causing serious injuries.

Rebecca Sapio, 41, of Orchard Park, was traveling south on Orchard Park Road when her SUV veered across the northbound lane, jumped the curb, and crashed into the Spa at Falling Waters, a business located at 3385 Orchard Park Road. The accident happened Thursday just before 10 a.m.

Lisa Pivonka, 27, of Springville, an employee of the spa, was pinned by the vehicle between her desk and chair, and had to be extricated by emergency personnel. The rescue took about half-an-hour, Orchard Park Police said.

She was taken by Mercy Flight to Erie County Medical Center with internal injuries. She's currently being treated in the intensive care unit, where her condition is listed as stable.

The driver was taken by ambulance to ECMC with minor injuries.
