P.A. Teen Killed in Cameron Accident:
A teenager from Pennsylvania was killed in a single vehicle accident on Labor Day in the Town of Cameron. According to State Police, troopers were dispatched to County Route 10 after an occupant of the vehicle, 17-year-old Creo Babcock of Cameron, self-extricated from the vehicle and walked to a nearby residence. Their investigation found that the vehicle, operated by 19-year-old Tessa Updyke of Kersey P.A., failed to negotiate a bend in the roadway and exited the west shoulder. It overturned multiple times, ejecting Updyke, before coming to rest in a ravine. Steuben County Coroner Dr. Robert Cole responded to the scene and ordered Updyke’s body be taken to Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton for an autopsy. The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Motorists Reminded to Respect School Buses:
Getting back to school is more than making sure students are prepared, motorists are also being reminded to respect school buses they may encounter on local and area streets. When a school bus stops and displays flashing red lights, all vehicles approaching from either direction must also come to a full stop. Those who fail to do so can face a fine of up $400 and five points on their license for a first offense.
