“Dylan Blair was a senior and would have graduated on June 28 and his death is truly a tragedy!” Superintendent William Lynch said. “School staff describe him as a positive, pleasant and outgoing person. He enjoyed working on cars and was a student in the Oswego County BOCES Auto Tech Program.”

School district officials confirm a vigil will be held today (June 19) at the high school athletic complex at 7 p.m.

According to State Police investigators, Blair was killed after the 1998 Saturn he was driving collided with a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe along state Route 3 in the town of Granby.

Witnesses told police the Saturn attempted to pass slowed vehicles in the westbound lane and crossed over into oncoming traffic, striking the Santa Fe head-on.

The driver of the Santa Fe was transported to Upstate University Medical Center in Syracuse for non-life threatening injuries.

Blair was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The three passengers in the Saturn were transported to Upstate University Medical Center.

They included: Joshua D. Barnello, 18, also senior at G. Ray Bodley; Brittany R. M. Donahue, 17, a junior; and Miranda Bivens, 18, a 2013 graduate.

Barnell and Bivens suffered non-life threatening internal injuries, according to authorities.

Donahue suffered facial fracture and lacerations.

As thoughts and condolences go out to the student’s family, Lynch said, “The district has a crisis support team in place at the high school comprised of district staff and staff from other schools in the county to provide support for students, family members and staff.”
