Hamburg Woman Found Along Side of the Road


HAMBURG, N.Y. - The husband of a woman who was found seriously hurt on the side of Big Tree Road says his wife has passed away from her injuries.

Hamburg Police say they are working to find out what happened to Jennifer Martello, 29, who was found seriously injured and unconscious along Big Tree Road early Tuesday morning.

Martello was discovered shortly after 12:30 A.M. near the Eaglecrest Mobile Home Park by a passerby. Martello was taken to ECMC.

"[She had] serious head trauma and she had some abrasions, leg, and facial," said Captain Kevin Trask of Hamburg Police.

Little else is known at this time about how Martello came to be in the road. Hamburg Police say so far, no witnesses have come forward.

"We don't have any evidence that suggests conclusively that a motor vehicle was involved, so until we have that we can't jump to any conclusions," Trask said.
