Erie County Sheriff’s Office Investigating Fatal Crash Along Route 62 in North Collins.

Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports Deputies and other first responders were dispatched to a crash on Route 62 (Gowanda State Road) between Milestrip and Wilcox roads at approximately 7:00 a.m. Friday.

The crash involved a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck. The vehicles collided head-on, and the driver of the pickup died as a result of the crash. EMS took the tractor-trailer operator to Erie County Medical Center for evaluation and treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the collision is under investigation. The victim’s identity is being withheld until proper identification is made, and officials can notify family members.

Due to a fuel spill and the ongoing investigation, a section of Route 62 will be closed.  Drivers are asked to follow established detours or find alternative routes.
