MORRIS, N.Y. — State police have released the names of the three men who died over the Labor Day weekend when their car crashed off a rural upstate New York road.
Troopers say Wednesday that a Volkswagen Jetta was headed west on state Route 23 around 3:15 a.m. Saturday when the driver failed to handle a curve and ran off the road.
The car hit several things before rolling over and coming to rest in a field in the Otsego County town of Morris, 75 miles west of Albany.
Troopers say all three men in the vehicle died. They’ve been identified as 21-year-old Dillon Clemens, of Plymouth, 22-year-old Jordan Crandall, of Norwich and 22-year-old Christopher Brissette, of Sherburne. Police say Clemens was driving.
They say excessive speed was a factor in the crash.
