ELMA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A 73-year-old woman was killed in a crash on Route 400 in Elma Tuesday morning.
New York State Troopers responded to the crash around 10:20 a.m.
They say Helen Deter, a resident of California, was driving a U-Haul truck north on Route 400 when the vehicle started drifting from lane to lane.
Eventually, the vehicle overturned and slid into a guardrail, causing it to flip upside down into a ditch.
Deter and her dog were ejected, but only the dog survived. Deter was pronounced dead at the scene.
At the time of the crash, she wasn’t wearing a seat belt.
