MCGRAW — An Oxford woman and the child in her vehicle suffered non-life-threatening injuries Thursday after she crashed into a concrete retaining wall, overturned her vehicle and became trapped inside.

Rebecca Meek, 52, of McCall Road, was driving west on West Main Street in McGraw when she lost control, according to the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office. Meek’s vehicle went off the road, striking a concrete barrier, a Sheriff’s Office news release states. The vehicle overturned in the accident and came to rest on its side, trapping Meek and the child inside, the release notes.

The McGraw Fire Department responded to the accident with the Sheriff’s Office and the pair were extracted from the vehicle. Both Meek and the child were taken to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse for treatment, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Meek was later ticketed for crossing hazard markings, the release states.
