Sheriff’s Office Investigating Early Morning Fatal Crash

MEXICO, NY – At about 2:45 a.m. Friday (Sept. 21), members of the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office, Mexico Fire Department and McFee Ambulance responded to State Route 104 in the town of Mexico, near George Road, for a single-car motor vehicle collision.

Further investigation revealed the 2001 Buick LeSabre was traveling in a westerly direction from the village of Mexico on State Route 104.

The vehicle left the north side of the roadway, struck a mailbox and traveled about 200 yards in the ditch striking a tree head-on and became engulfed in flames, according to deputies.

Unsafe speed and crossing hazardous markings appear to be contributing factors to the accident, deputies reported.

The investigation is pending identification of the decedent and notification of next of kin.
