Derby woman killed in head-on crash in Town of Boston

A Derby woman was killed late Sunday afternoon when her vehicle collided head-on with another vehicle in the Town of Boston, authorities said.

Peachy J. Schrock, 63, was traveling southbound on Boston State Road, near Chestnut Ridge Road, about 5 p.m. when her 2007 Toyota Prius struck a northbound 2008 Ford Explorer head-on, State Police said.

Schrock was taken to Mercy Ambulatory Care Center where she was pronounced dead. The 19-year-old operator of the Ford was taken to Erie County Medical Center with minor injuries.

The State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit was on scene late Sunday. The cause of the collision is still under investigation, although weather and road conditions do not appear to be a factor, said Trooper James O'Callaghan, public information officer for Troop A.
