GENESEO–Expanding upon a report filed by the AP in the Wednesday edition of The Evening Sun, authorities released the identity of the Norwich woman killed in a two-vehicle MVA in Geneseo on Tuesday afternoon. A community vigil is planned for Thursday evening.
According to dispatch records, an E-911 call of a reported tractor-trailer vs. car incident was received by the Livingston County Emergency Communications Center on December 20 at 2:36 p.m.
Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty confirmed that the driver of the passenger vehicle was identified as 18 year old Savannah Williams of Norwich, a 2016 graduate of Norwich High School. Ms. Williams was pronounced deceased at the scene by Livingston County EMS Medical Director Dr. Aaron Farney.
According to Livingston County Sheriff, a preliminary investigation indicates that Williams' vehicle pulled off of Court Street into the path of the tractor trailer that was traveling north on Route 63. The tractor struck the passenger vehicle on the driver’s side and then came to rest between Court Street and the Genesee River bridge.
State Route 63 was closed down to all traffic for several hours following the incident while deputies and reconstructionists conducted the investigation.
