A fatal accident remains under investigation this evening.
Emergency responders were called to the scene of a two-car accident on State Route 11 in the town of Burke, Franklin County, New York at approximately 7:34 a.m. on Friday, July 22, 2022. Several Local fire and emergency medical services, as well as the Franklin Police Department, were at the scene.
According to a written statement from the New York State Police, the results of a preliminary investigation “determined that a 2013 Audi A6 driven by Zackrey J. Peck, 28, of Ellenburg Depot, was traveling toward the west on SR-11 and crossed the eastbound lane, hitting an oncoming 2019 Ford F-250 driven by Mark W. Boyer, 51, of Chateaugay, NY.
It’s not immediately clear what caused Peck to cross into the opposite lane of traffic. At the time, no other vehicles were believed to have been involved in the incident.
Peck died at the scene. Boyer was taken to the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington for treatment of injuries that police say are not life-threatening.
Authorities say an autopsy is scheduled to determine “the cause and circumstances of Peck’s death.”
The investigation is continuing. Witnesses, drivers with dash cam footage of the incident, or anyone with information that may be helpful to the investigation are urged to call police.
