New York State Police say a Delhi man is dead after his car drifted into the oncoming lane of State Route 28 in the Town of Franklin and hit a tractor trailer, head-on.

Officials say 31 year old James Crosby was driving north at 6:11 p.m. December 29 when he drifted into the southbound lane, colliding with the tractor trailer driven by 42 year old Jamie Dougherty of Oneonta.

Investigators say Dougherty attempted to avoid being hit by the 2001 Buick Century, left the road and hit a stone wall, coming to rest in a wooded area.

Dougherty complained of pain to his body and was transported to Fox Memorial Hospital.

Crosby was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation is continuing.
