The driver of the other vehicle, Connie McDowell of Dansville, suffered broken bones in her legs and other injuries. She’s listed in satisfactory condition at Strong Memorial Hospital. Zangerle was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital. Mount Morris is 30 miles southeast of Rochester. State police are investigating the accident.
