FREEDOM, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say three children are among the six people who have been hospitalized after a pickup truck crashed off a rural western New York road.

Sheriff’s deputies in Cattaraugus County say the accident occurred around 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the town of Freedom, where the Cattaraugus, Wyoming and Allegany county lines meet 40 miles southeast of Buffalo.

Deputies say the man’s truck crashed off state Route 98 into a parked minivan with two children in it, then hit another child and two adults who were in front of a yard sale near the van.

The driver and the adults were taken to Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, while the children were taken to Women and Children’s Hospital, also in Buffalo. Information on their conditions hasn’t been released.

There’s no word yet if the driver will face charges.
