Jason R. Clark, 29 years of age, of 807 County Route 25, Oswego, was operating a 2005 Ford Taurus Northbound on West Fifth Street Road when it appears he lost control of his vehicle on the slippery roadway.

The vehicle left the west side of the road and struck a tree on the passenger side of the car.
