Police say a 52-year-old woman failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection and her vehicle was struck by two others. Troopers say the woman and her 31-year-old daughter were taken to a Buffalo hospital, along with a 62-year-old man driving one of the other vehicles.

Police say the other four people injured in the crash were taken to a local hospital.

Troopers say none of the injuries are considered life-threatening.

Police say charges are pending against the 52-year-old woman.
