Corfu, NY (January 5, 2019) – Tractor-trailer accidents don’t typically take place as often as other types of accidents involving motor vehicles in New York. However, when they do occur, there is a good chance that you will either receive catastrophic injuries or someone will lose their life.
Last night, January 4, the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene of a serious tractor-trailer accident that took the life of one person. The accident took place when the driver of an SUV rear-ended a tractor-trailer traveling on South Lake Road.
Emergency responders arrived at the scene of the accident around 6 p.m. to find that the SUV ran off the side of the road and ran into some bushes following the accident. It sustained extremely serious damages to the front-end.
At this time, no charges have been filed. Police say that one person in the SUV lost their life at the scene of the tragic accident. The investigation into the matter continues at this time.
