GATES, N.Y. (WHEC) — A serious crash on Route 531 at I-490 in Gates has left one woman dead and two others injured.

The single-car crash occurred just after 12:30 p.m. on Monday.


Deputies said 43-year-old Kathryn Slattery of the Village of Brockport was traveling eastbound when her car left the road, went into the center median before heading down a ravine and striking a tree. 

Slattery was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The two male passengers are at Strong Memorial Hospital in guarded but stable condition. Their names or ages have not yet been released.

Investigators believe weather may have contributed to the crash, but the accident reconstruction team is still working on the case.

“Until we complete the investigation, we won't know for sure,” Captain Samuel Bell said. “It definitely could be a contributing factor, but there could be other factors involved, such as a medical event, distracted driving or whatnot so obviously, with the snow and slippery roads that could be a contributing factor, but we won't know a final determination until this is all complete.”

Deputies are looking to speak with anyone who was traveling in the area around 12:30 p.m. on Monday and may have witnessed the crash.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
