GEROGETOWN — The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash. At around 1:10 a.m. Thursday, sheriff’s deputies responded to Crumb Hill Road in the area of Ridge Road of Georgetown for a reported two-vehicle crash.

A 2005 Ford Fusion operated by 31-year-old, Crystal L. Savage from Cortland, was traveling west on Crumb Hill Road, when the vehicle collided with a tractor trailer operated by Daryl Dunagan of Georgetown. Savage and a passenger, 29-year-old, Brittney N. Casler of Cuyler, required extrication from the vehicle and were transported to Upstate Medical Center.

Savage was pronounced dead at the hospital from injuries sustained in the crash. Casler is being treated for serious injuries, but is expected to survive, officials said. Sheriff’s investigators closed Crumb Hill Road for several hours to conduct accident reconstruction. The road has reopened, and the accident remains under investigation.

Madison County Sheriff’s Office members were assisted by DeRuyter Fire Department, Georgetown Fire Department, Cazenovia Fire Department, CAVAC Ambulance, SEVAC Ambulance, and the State Police Commercial Vehicle Unit.
