CLARENCE, N.Y. (WIVB)–An Akron man is dead after a crash in the Town of Clarence last Saturday.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a single-vehicle crash at 9:12 p.m. in front of 4350 Shisler Road.

Twenty-three-year-old Caleb Nati’s car appeared to strike a tree and then a natural gas pipeline. Officials say the line was damaged and leaking.
