ELBA — A family of five driving south on Route 98 from Orleans County suffered minor injuries when its car went off Route 98 this evening and struck a parked vehicle, which in turn struck another parked vehicle.

In the car were a husband and wife and their two sons and daughter, said Genesee County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Andrew Hale.
