HARRISVILLE, N.Y. (WWNY) - State police have identified the person who died in a two-vehicle crash in the town of Diana late Thursday afternoon.

Troopers say 19 year old Dylan Richards of Harrisville was driving his SUV north on State Route 3 when he crossed into the opposite lane to pass another vehicle and hit a pickup truck head-on.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pickup, 63 year old Kevin Martin of Carthage, swerved, but was unable to avoid the crash. He and a passenger, 63 year old Robert Ayers, were taken to Carthage Area Hospital for treatment of what police describe as non-life-threatening injuries.

The vehicle Richards was passing was not involved in the crash.
