One dead, one hurt in New York car accident

One man is dead and a second seriously injured after a wrong-way crash in Cortland County on the morning of Sept. 22, according to local authorities. New York State Police say the car accident involved a passenger vehicle and a tractor-trailer. It appears the car was traveling the wrong direction when the accident occurred.

The accident report says the 61-year-old driver of the car was traveling southbound on Route 90 when, for reasons unknown, he drifted into northbound lanes. This took him directly into the path of a northbound tractor-trailer, which he struck head-on. The driver of the smaller vehicle was declared dead at the scene of the accident by arriving medical authorities responding to a 911 call.
