Fatal accident in Narrowsburg

NARROWSBURG, NY — At 7:30 p.m. on May 20, a Blue Ford truck with NY plates traveled down Erie Avenue, crossed lower Main Street into the Tinway Apartments parking lot, before flipping into the runoff stream of Little Lake Erie. There was a lawnmower in the truck. The airbag had been deployed.

Beach Lake Volunteer Fire Department was first called to the scene, as Narrowsburg and Lava volunteer firefighters were on a lift assist for the Tusten Volunteer Ambulance Service. Narrowsburg and Lava joined the scene following the assist.

As of late Friday afternoon, the state police had not released the identity of the driver. There were no passengers in the truck. At press time, state police could not be reached to provide any further information.
