SILVER SPRINGS, N.Y. — The driver of a dump truck owned by the Wyoming County Highway Department died in a crash Friday afternoon.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office.
Reports of the crash came in at 12:42 p.m., when people called in about a dump truck that had crashed into a building on East Perry Avenue in the Village of Silver Springs.
A witness there told the sheriff's department that the dump truck, which had been traveling east, veered into the other lane and into on-coming traffic.
"Upon doing so an electrical pole was sheered, parked cars were struck and a building hit, which stopped the truck," according to a statement by the sheriff's department, adding that no other vehicles and no pedestrians were involved.
An investigation by the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office Crash Management Team is ongoing.
