Malone woman dies in two-vehicle collision
Fifty-four-year-old Malone, New York resident Betty Case has lost her life while two other individuals were rushed to the hospital after a two-vehicle collision on Wednesday, July 6 at around 5:08 p.m. along State Route 37 near the intersection with Bare Hill Road.
According to preliminary investigations made by the New York State Police, a 2015 Ford Fiesta was headed east on State Route 37 at approximately one-half mile west of Bare Hill Road, when for an unknown reason swerved into the westbound lane and collided head-on with a 2016 Ford Escape. Case was a passenger in the Ford Fiesta. The drivers of both vehicles were brought to the same hospital that Case was taken to by Malone EMS and then airlifted to the University of Vermont Health Network at Fletcher Allen in Burlington.
Franklin County Coroner Brian Langdon said Case “succumbed to her injuries” after she was brought to Alice Hyde Medical Center by Bangor Emergency Medical Services.
