DEWITT, N.Y. -- An elderly woman is dead, after being involved in what appeared to be a minor accident in DeWitt.
Elinor Peth, 82, crashed at the corning of East Genesee Street and Erie Boulevard just before noon Monday. Police say it appears she was trying to make a left hand turn when the vehicle lost control, struck another vehicle, then went into the tree.
Peth was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Police are still investigating exactly how she died.
