Harpersfield, NY (February 5, 2019) – Police were dispatched to the scene of a fatal motor vehicle accident that took place on Monday night, February 4, in the town of Harpersfield. According to authorities, the crash occurred at around 10:54 p.m. on Odell Lake Road in the vicinity of Peters Road.
At this time, police believe that the driver of a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado veered off the roadway before crashing head-on into a tree. However, authorities are uncertain as to whether or not the cause of the accident was due to a mechanical failure, another driver, a medical episode, or any other reason. Emergency medical crews were called to the scene where they tragically pronounced the victim dead.
The roadway had to be shut down for around four hours as police began their preliminary investigation. Neither the identity of the victim nor any other information has been made available. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
