Two Genesee Community College co-eds were injured this morning in a rear end collision on East Main Street.
Their injuries turned out not to be as severe as first believed.
Batavia Detective Todd Crossett said a car operated by 19-year-old Pearl Jefferson of Perry became disabled in the 200 block of East Main around 12:45 this morning.
Pearl then phoned a friend for help.
Megan McClurg, 19, of Rochester came to Pearl's aid and began pushing the car off to the side of the street.
At this point, police said, a second vehicle struck the disabled car from behind, pinning Megan between the two vehicles.
Megan sustained leg fractures. Pearl, who remained in her car, suffered a head injury.
Pearl was treated at Strong Hospital and released. Megan is listed in satisfactory condition.
The two women students at GCC and believed to be living in the Batavia area.
The driver of the second car, 21-year-old Brandon Gendron of Oakfield was not injured.
Crossett said no charges have been filed, although the accident remains under investigation. He said alcohol did not play a part in the accident.
