Minor injuries reported in rollover accident in Rome

By RACHEL MURPHY

ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) -Just before 1 a.m., a car traveling westbound in Rome along Route 49 swerved off the road to avoid hitting a deer.

The car then flipped, rolling over several times, before eventually tumbling into a nearby ditch.

Officers from the Oneida County Sheriff's Department say the passengers only had minor injuries. But the car's windshield was smashed into pieces and its roof buckled.

According to police the accident is still under investigation. WKTV will provide more information once it becomes available.
