DOWNSVILLE, N.Y. — The name of the New Jersey man who was killed when his car slammed into the back of a trailer parked alongside an upstate New York road last weekend has been identified and is now released by the authorities.
The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office told the media that the driver is identified as 53-year-old George Swan, a brokerage firm president from Ridgewood, N.J. Deputies related that Swan was traveling on Route 206 last Sunday. For unknown reasons, his car drifted out of the right lane and crashed into a parked trailer in a pullout lane. The place was just outside the rural hamlet of Downsville, 75 miles southwest of Albany.
The impact was tremendous that Swan was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believed that speed might have been the main factor in the crash. Police continue their investigation.
A few hours for the crash of the New Jersey man, the life of another man was claimed in a wreck in Bryan County.
A man was on his way from Florida to New Jersey to help in the recovery of devastation caused by hurricane Sandy. He died in a traffic mishap Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 95 in Bryan County.
According to Richmond Hill Police Chief Billy Reynolds, at about 2:15 p.m., the man was traveling north between exits 87 and 90 when he lost control striking vehicles being used by maintenance workers and flipping his vehicle. However, none of the workers were hurt in the accident, Reynolds.
As of Tuesday night, the identity of the fatalist has not been released pending notification of his family. The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the accident.
