MOUNT MORRIS, N.Y. (WHEC) — One person is dead and two others are injured after a three-vehicle crash on State Route 36 in Livingston County Tuesday.

State Police say it happened near the Cleveland Road in the town of Mount Morris just after 6 p.m.

Troopers say one of the vehicles was heading north on State Route 36 when an uninvolved southbound vehicle made a left turn and a pickup truck directly behind it was struck by a third vehicle from behind. That vehicle was also a pickup truck, towing a flatbed carrying a car, and the impact caused it to go into the northbound lane and strike the northbound vehicle.

The driver of the northbound vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene and a young child who was in the northbound vehicle was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the third vehicle was taken to Noyes Hospital with minor injuries.

The pickup truck driver was not injured.

Troopers say they are still investigating the crash.
