A trusted source for news about emergency responses, Allegany County Fire Wire, reported some sad Easter Sunday news.

This service reports news as they hear the situation unfold over emergency service radio/scanners.

They provide a general idea of what transpired, not exact details: “Several units responding to an Amish Buggy accident on Rushford Road in Centerville. Reported possibly serious injuries, potential of 6 to 8 patients.”

Shortly after that, responders at the scene prepared for an medical helicopter to arrive to transport an infant for treatment.

All other injured at the scene were reported to be stable. We’ve asked the New York State Police for any updates on the victim or the circumstance and will provide updates.
