Monday: Route 81 Accident Traps Woman
An accident on Route 81 closed the southbound lanes between exits 48 and 48A in the Town of Pamelia for about an hour Monday afternoon.
A tire blew causing a vehicle to flip over, state police said, trapping a woman and her dog inside for a while.
The woman was taken to a Syracuse hospital with what was described as a serious arm injury.
The dog was ok.
Police said the woman was returning from a camp in the Thousand Islands to her home on Long Island. Her name was not immediately available.
