CENTRAL NEW YORK -- A dangerous day for drivers, on a 15 mile stretch of State Route 104 in Oswego and Cayuga Counties.

Slippery conditions may have played a role in three separate accidents keeping investigators busy throughout the night Friday.

Oswego County Sheriff's deputies are looking into the deadly crash in the Town of Oswego.

According to deputies, James Iorizzo's, 55, car crossed the center line and struck a Jeep Liberty around 3:30 in the afternoon.

He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Deputies say that accident is still under investigation.

Just down the road a second accident sent a State Trooper to the hospital.

It happened on Route 104 in the Town of Hannibal near the Hall Road intersection.

State Police say the Trooper was helping a disabled tractor, when his vehicle was hit from behind starting a chain reaction crash.

Four vehicles were involved in the wreck.

Investigators say the tractor broke down in a dangerous spot.

"It's almost at a hillcrest here, so the trooper realized right off the bat that was a hazardous condition. We had to stop and see if we could get that tractor out of the highway," said Capt. Jeffrey Raub, New York State Police.

Three people in total were taken to the hospital, but are expected to be okay.

And a third crash on State Route 104, this one a little further west near Martville.

Cayuga County 911 dispatchers say it happened around 5:20 Friday evening, between the intersections with Queens Farm and Sanford Roads.

Two vehicles collided on the road. No word on possible injuries, or what caused the crash.
