NICHOLS (WBNG) -- New York State Police are searching for an elderly driver who caused a crash on State Route 17 on Saturday.

Police say a driver who was traveling eastbound on Route 17 saw a silver vehicle traveling the wrong way, swerved to avoid a head-on crash, and rolled over.

Authorities say the vehicle traveling the wrong way continued in that direction. The driver of the vehicle that rolled over was transported to Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital, and is being treated for head and neck injuries.

Police described the driver of the silver car as an elderly woman, possibly in her 80s.

Anyone with information is asked to contact New York State Police at Owego at (607)687-3961.
