2 women, 1 child airlifted after Lancaster County crash

Staff ReportsJune 3, 2014 

— Two women and a child were airlifted Tuesday afternoon following a crash in Lancaster County, authorities said.

A 26-year-old Lancaster woman was driving a 2007 Honda four door car on North Rocky River Road near Buford middle and high schools when she ran off the right side of the road, overcorrected, drove left of the road and then struck a tree. The Honda overturned and the driver and her front passenger, a 27-year-old Lancaster woman, were ejected from the vehicle, according to the Highway Patrol.

Neither women were wearing a seat belt, said Lance Cpl. Gary Miller.

A child, whose age was not released, was also in the car and was not wearing a seat belt. The child was not entrapped or ejected, Miller said.

All three victims were airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

The Buford Volunteer Fire Department, Lancaster County Fire Service employees and Lancaster County EMS also responded to the accident, which was reported just after 4 p.m.

Lancaster schools dismissed for the summer last week, so the wreck did not involve school traffic.

The crash remains under investigation.
