TWO MEN ARE KILLED AFTER TRUCK HITS TREE

Two men died Monday after their pickup truck hit a tree on School Street.

State police were reconstructing the accident, which occurred about 7:30 p.m. near the former Kill Buck School.

Greg Horning, 37, of Whig Street, Salamanca, was taken by Salamanca Fire Department ambulance to Olean General Hospital, where an emergency room spokesman said he died a short time later.

Jason Nickerson, no age available, of the Salamanca area, also died in the crash, authorities said.

Cattaraugus County Coroner Cleon W. Easton III of Franklinville was called to the scene to determine the cause of deaths but was not available to comment.

Several close to the crash scene said the truck the men were in apparently was traveling south on County Road 49 and failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection of Route 417. The truck continued further south onto School Street and struck the tree.

Police and firefighters were still on the scene late Monday evening.

No further information was available.
