26-year-old East Aurora woman dies in Aurora collision

A 26-year-old woman was killed Friday morning in a collision near the end of the Route 400 in the town of Aurora, according to East Aurora police.

The collision at the intersection of Olean Road and the beginning of the 400 expressway happened at about 6:30 a.m., said East Aurora Police Lt. Patrick Welch.

The woman, identified as Corrine M. Closson of East Aurora, was driving a black Chevrolet Cobalt that turned left in front of a van that was heading north on Route 16 and onto the expressway, Welch said.

The speed of the vehicles combined with the differences in size created a significant impact, police said.

A passenger in the Cobalt, who was not identified, and the driver of the van, identified as a 40-year-old Delevan man, were not injured, he said.

Route 400 southbound has been reduced to one lane of traffic. Northbound traffic was being diverted from the 400 onto Olean Road but the detour ended at about 10:45 a.m. Lane restrictions in the area were lifted at about noon.

The collision is being investigated by the East Aurora Police Accident Investigation Unit and the Erie County Sheriff's Accident Investigation Unit.
