A woman driving in the Hudson Valley with a brain bleed caused an accident and fled from police.

On Sunday around 1 a.m., Rosendale police monitored a 911 call about an accident in the Town of Rochester on Lucas Avenue.

It was reported that one of the drivers left the scene. A second call was received a short time later, reporting the car that left the accident was driving erratically on State Route 213 in the Town Rosendale.
