An accident on Route 58 in the Town of Gouverneur claimed one life and closed the road for several hours Friday evening.

Randy J. Brozzo was killed when he attempted to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone on Route 58, according to state police.

Brozzo's 2001 Ford Focus crashed head-on into a Dodge Ram 1500 driven by Ronald J. Hartle, police said.

St. Lawrence County Coroner June Wood pronounced Randy Brozzo dead at the scene. A passenger in his car, Brittany Brozzo, was treated for minor injuries at E.J. Noble Hospital, as was Hartle.

Fire and rescue personnel from Gouverneur reportedly responded to the scene. The crash happened just south of the village of Gouverneur.

An autopsy was scheduled for Saturday at Canton-Potsdam Hospital.

State police responded to the accident at 5:20 p.m.
