REDFIELD — Members of the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident Wednesday night, where two teenagers were pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident was in the area of 6200 county Route 17 in the town of Redfield around 10:47 p.m., deputies said.
A preliminary investigation revealed that four teenagers occupied a 2008 Chevrolet pickup truck, and it was traveling on county Route 17 when it collided with a tree that was knocked down by a storm. After colliding with the tree, the truck ended up in a ditch.
Shortly after exiting the vehicle, the driver, Madysen Young, 17, of Sandy Creek, and a passenger, Matthew Bice, 17, of Albion, contacted with live wires that were entangled with the downed tree.
Both Young and Bice were pronounced dead at the scene as a result of coming in contact with the wires, deputies said. Two 16-year-old boys survived the incident, deputies said.
The Oswego County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the New York State Police, Redfield Volunteer Fire Department and NOCA Ambulance.
The incident is still under investigation, deputies said.
