An Alden man died Thursday after a one-vehicle crash on Bartz Road in the Town of Sheldon on Wednesday morning.

Michael Colson, 54, was heading southbound on Bartz when he apparently lost control of his vehicle, which struck a tree and overturned, according to the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash occurred just after 11 a.m. Wednesday, and Colson was taken by Strykersville Ambulance to Wyoming County Community Hospital, where he was picked up by Mercy Flight and taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, the sheriff’s office said.

Colson died from his injuries at 4:25 a.m. Thursday.

The crash remains under investigation by the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office’s crash management team.
