Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A Gasport woman was killed Tuesday night in a motor vehicle accident on Ridge Road in Hartland.

The victim has been identified as Filica A. Rutherford, 36.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call about the crash in the 8500 block of Ridge Road, around 8:15 p.m. They determined that Rutherford's eastbound vehicle left the road, went onto the south shoulder and struck a tree in the front yard of 8549 Ridge Road before coming to rest.

Rutherford was transported to Eastern Niagara Hospital-Lockport shortly after and was pronounced deceased.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office Accident Investigation Unit continued looking into the accident Wednesday.
