LYSANDER, N.Y.– State police are continuing their investigation of a three-car crash that occurred in the early morning of October 18, 2017. The accident occurred on State Route 48, also known as Oswego Road, in the town of Lysander.
The investigation revealed a 2009 Chevrolet pickup and a 2011 Hyundai were on State Route 48 when a 2014 Chevrolet failed to yield the right of way. The driver made a left turn from State Route 48 and in the process, struck the pickup truck. The pickup was also struck from behind by the Hyundai, causing the truck to travel off the roadway. It was there, on the property of 9477 Oswego Road, that the truck engulfed in flames.
Parts of State Route 48 were closed while first responders put out the flames from the truck and attended to the drivers involved in the crash. The Greater Baldwinsville Ambulance Corps and the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office were called the scene to aid in the investigation. The road was closed for three hours after the accident occurred and the roads opened back up around 8am, officials said.
The pickup truck driver, Roger Clark, of Oswego, was transported to SUNY Upstate Medical Center. It was there that he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Hyundai, Star Moran, of Fulton, did not sustain any injuries in the crash. The driver that caused the accident, Daniel Ramsey of Cato, was also transported to SUNY Upstate Medical Center. Ramsey was also received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.
