GEDDES, N.Y. -- Police are releasing more information about a double fatal car crash. It happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday.
Investigators tell us three people were traveling in a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix eastbound on Interstate 690.
The driver lost control and spun into a concrete median and the vehicle ended up in the passing lane.
Police say the driver was a 20-year-old woman from out of state, but have not released her name. She was killed, along with Ryan Misener, 21, of Liverpool. Joseph Clayton, also from Liverpool, was in that car and suffered severe head trauma.
Another vehicle, driven by David Grice, 25, of Fulton, hit the Pontiac. He was taken to the hospital and is in serious condition
Investigators are looking into a cause and say rain may or may not have contributed to the accident.
"We've been led to believe that the car did not have operable windshield wipers. Also been led to believe that there was rain. Certainly, 690 late at night with inoperative windshield wipers could be a sensible cause to the first accident," New York State Police Captain Mark Lincoln said.
The Pontiac was borrowed and it was not registered to any of the passengers.
