BUFFALO, N.Y. — One woman is in the hospital following a wrong-way crash Thursday morning on the 198 westbound near Main St. in Buffalo.

According to Buffalo Police Captain Jeff Rinaldo, one of the vehicles was traveling the wrong way on the 198 and hit another vehicle head on. The driver of the car traveling the wrong way suffered serious injuries and was rushed into surgery. 

Both drivers of the vehicles were women. Their names have not yet been released. Police are investigating what led up to the crash, which happened just after 6 a.m. Thursday.

All lanes of the 198 west near Main Street were closed for several hours while investigators were at the scene. That caused headaches during the morning commute. 

There was another crash earlier Thursday morning that had the inbound 33 closed at the 198 interchange. That forced traffic to exit the 33 onto the 198 right near the other crash.

We don't know at this time what caused the other crash or if anyone was hurt. 

This is a developing story, we will continue to update this as we learn more.
