GOUVERNEUR State police said one man is dead following a two-vehicle accident reported at 5:20 p.m. Friday on state Route 58 in the town of Gouverneur.
Troopers said their investigation revealed a 2001 Ford Focus, operated by Randy J. Brozzo of Gouverneur, was southbound on Route 58 and attempted to pass an uninvolved vehicle in a no-passing zone. The Brozzo vehicle collided head-on with a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 being operated by Ronald J. Hartle.
Troopers said St. Lawrence County Coroner June Wood responded to the accident scene.
A passenger in the Focus, Brittany Brozzo, as well as Mr. Hartle were transported by Gouverneur Rescue to EJ. Noble Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and were released.
