Charges are pending from the accident in Bergen involving three passenger cars and a tractor-trailer tanker.
The accident happened yesterday morning on Route 33 and West Bergen Road.
State Police said it appears the collision began when a driver of one of the cars, Robin Lewis of Bergen, made a left turn in front of the oncoming tanker.
That set off a chain reaction that led to the tanker going out of control and into the path of car driven by Rosalie Pacino of Batavia.
Pacino’s car slid under the tanker trapping her in her vehicle for over an hour.
She suffered a leg injury and was airlifted to Strong Memorial and is in satisfactory condition today. Two others injured in the accident were taken to Strong by ground ambulance with lesser injuries.

State lawmakers are optimistic that a budget deal is close at hand. Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos says maybe even by this evening.

Buffalo has lost nearly 11% of its population in the past decade. Figures from the 2010 census show Buffalo's population is now at 261,000. The loss was larger than predicted. Noting that New York is one of the highest-taxed states, Mayor Byron Brown said he believes the loss was attributable to what he called "clear dysfunction" in Albany.
