ISHAWA, New York (WIVB) – The Cataragues County Rif Department says a 63-year-old man was killed and his 43-year-old son was injured in a four-vehicle crash in the town of Ishwa.
The sheriff’s department told us that the 63-year-old was sitting in the back of his 43-year-old son driving a four-wheeler. The father was walking down a steep slope in the woods, and they were both on their own.
We are told that the father could not “negotiate the hill” and turned the four-wheel-drive vehicle backwards.
The 43-year-old was flown to Erie County Medical Center for treatment for his injuries. The 63-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Carthage County Sheriff’s Department is investigating, and charges have been filed.
