WAYLAND, N.Y. (WETM) – Two Elmira residents were killed in a weekend crash on I-390 northbound in Wayland.
On July 3 at approximately 9:58 a.m., New York State Police responded to a pick-up truck and tractor-trailer accident. The investigation found that the tractor-trailer was in the driving lane when it was rear-ended by the pick-up truck near the Livingston County border.
The driver of the pick-up truck, Harold Novitsky, 58, and his daughter, Miranda Novitsky, 19, were killed during the collision, according to State Police.
The operator of the tractor-trailer, Randolph Notice, from Mississauga, Ontario was taken to Noyes Hospital for a complaint of pain.
State Police believe the speed of the pickup truck was a factor in the accident and the investigation is continuing.
A GoFundMe for funeral expenses has already raised over $20,000. An official for SUNY Geneseo Athletics confirmed to 18 News that Miranda was a member of the women’s soccer team.
