A one-vehicle crash Saturday in Genesee County split a car in half and sent 2 people to hospitals.
Road patrol deputies were called to Ledge Road in the Town of Alabama. Police say the car hit a power pole and the car was severed into 2 parts.
Police are trying to figure out what led to the car driving off the road.
They say Shawn Wolcott, Sr., 30, was in the car with his son, 10, when he went off the road and hit a National Grid power line.
Wolcott's son was in the back seat, and police say the father and son flew in different directions.
Pieces of the car stopped in a nearby cornfield.
"We don't see anything before the crash, before it went off the road to indicate any emergency situation, it just appears as though he slowly went off the road for some reason," according to Chief Deputy Gordon Dibble, with the Genesee County Sheriff's Office Road Patrol.
Mercy Flight flew the boy to Buffalo Women & Children's Hospital. An ambulance took Wolcott, Sr., to Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo. There's no word how badly they are hurt.
