Depauville, NY (March 21, 2019) – A 21-year-old man was reported to have tragically lost his life when the farm tractor he had been riding in rolled over on Wednesday morning, March 20th. The fatal accident was stated to have taken place along Route 12, near Old Town Springs Road, around 11:00 a.m., according to authorities.
Emergency responders arrived at the scene where they found Steven A. Scott II, 21, of Clayton, pinned between a component in the cab of the tractor and the road. Crews worked to remove Scott from the vehicle, as he had to be pulled through the back window. Medical crews ultimately determined that the victim could not be resuscitated at the scene, where he was sadly pronounced deceased.
Additionally, authorities found that Scott had been traveling with another party, identified as Nathan S. Kilborn, 21, of Clayton, who suffered injuries in the crash. Kilborn was immediately taken to Samaritan Medical Center to be treated for injuries that have not been specified. At this time, it appears that the operator lost control of the tractor, however, the cause of the crash is under investigation.
