What are you talking about?
The story is still on our local news page and clearly states "Batavia-Oakfield Townline Rd. at the intersection of Lewiston Rd. (Route 63).

You should know that WBTA was the first news agency to broadcast the story - correctly - on Friday afternoon at 4:45PM.

The original notification, from New York Alert, was vague and incorrect. It was not until WBTA brought this to the attention of Genesee County Emergency Management officials that a second, accurate, release was made.
