With just a week to go before this year's Genesee County Back to the Bricks event, an emotional blow was dealt to event organizers.

A committee spokesman says Roberta Vasilow, chair of this year's event, was involved in a serious accident last night in Ohio.

While exact details of the accident are not known, what is known is that Vasilow was hauling her classic Buick behind her truck when the accident happened.

The Mundy Township resident is at a hospital in Columbus with serious injuries.

Back to the Bricks founder Al Hatch will take over the chair position while Vasilow recovers.
