Pennsylvania man killed in Chautauqua County collision

KIANTONE – A 57-year-old Warren, Pa. man was killed and a 50-year-old Russell, Pa. woman was injured when their vehicles collided at about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday on Route 62 in Kiantone, according to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office.

Joseph F. Guiffre III had been southbound on Route 62 when his vehicle went off the road, struck a guardrail and went into the northbound lane. There he crashed head-on with a vehicle driven by Elise M. Lund.

Guiffre was pronounced dead at the scene and Lund was taken to WCA Hospital in Jamestown for treatment of what were described as non-life threatening injuries.

Route 62 was closed for about two and a half hours so the crash scene could be cleaned up. The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate the accident.
