Two people are dead following the collision of a car and a tractor-trailer truck Wednesday morning at Eagle Harbor Road and Route 31A in the Town of Barre, according to the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office.
A woman passenger in the car was pronounced dead at the scene, Undersheriff Christopher M. Bourke said, and the man who was driving died in Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, after he was airlifted there by Mercy Flight.
The truck driver was not injured, authorities said.
Investigators said the car, which was northbound on Eagle Harbor Road shortly before 10:30 a.m., stopped at the intersection with Route 31A, but failed to yield the right of way when it attempted to turn left in front of the truck, which was eastbound on Route 31A. The names of the victims are withheld pending notification of family, authorities said.
