Wyoming County

WYOMING COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Wyoming County woman died in a crash involving a car and a tractor-trailer and two of her children were taken to the hospital from the crash scene in Castile.

The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office said that Renee Morris had died by the time deputies first arrived on Tuesday afternoon to Route 39 at East Lake Road.

Morris, of Portageville, was 38 years old.

Two of her children, ages 10 and 11, were taken to a Rochester hospital. Deputies said they were passengers in the backseat.

Officials say the tractor-trailer driver was not injured. He was cited with failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation at this time, but the sheriff believes dense fog played a significant factor.
