EAST PEMBROKE, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two people are dead as the result of a crash on I-90 in Genesee County.

The New York State Thruway Authority tweeted just after 6 p.m. that the accident occurred on I-90 westbound between exits 48 and 48A in Pembroke. The right lane is blocked.

A photo from a News 4 photographer at the scene showed a trailer off the roadway and a heavily damaged vehicle. New York State police say a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 pulling the trailer was headed west when it went off the road and drove through a grassy area before hitting the Slusser Road bridge.

Police say at this point, the trailer became detached before coming to a rest, vertically, against the overpass.

The two people killed were identified as Crossville, Alabama resident Thomas Cartmel, 64, and Rochester resident Deborah Burrelli, 67. Cartmel was the driver, while Burrelli was his passenger. State police say they were pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation into this crash is ongoing.
