POMPEY, N.Y. (AP) — Police in upstate New York say a serious crash has left one person dead and another with life-threatening injuries.
The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says they’re investigating the Wednesday night crash in Pompey (PAHM’-pee) involving a pickup truck and a combine farm truck. Deputies say they believe the pickup truck rear-ended the farm truck when it was stopped in a southbound lane.
