Cicero, NY – Update: Authorities Identify Those Involved in Fatal Crash on I-481
Cicero, NY (April 16, 2019) – New York State Police have identified the individuals who were reported to have been seriously injured in a two-car crash that took place on Monday afternoon, April 15th. According to the original story, an SUV and a box truck collided head-on along I-481 at approximately 3:02 p.m., resulting in the serious injuries of three people. Tragically, one of the parties involved died from their injuries.
Police have now reported that a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, operated by 70-year-old Thomas F. Fredenburg, of Baldwinsville, had been traveling north along the interstate with one passenger, identified as 70-year-old Marilou E. Fredenburg, also of Baldwinsville, when the accident occurred.
At this time, Mr. Fredenburg is believed to have possibly suffered a medical episode while driving which caused him to veer into the center median where he struck a guardrail and launched his vehicle into the southbound lane. The Jeep subsequently collided head-on with a 2016 Chevrolet Express Cube Van, operated by Anthony Almazi, 59, of Dewitt.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Fredenburg were transported to SUNY Upstate Medical University, where Mr. Fredenburg was sadly pronounced deceased. Mrs. Fredenburg was admitted to undergo treatment for two broken arms as well as internal injuries. Almazi was also hospitalized for internal injuries.
The investigation into this crash is ongoing.
