SENECA COUNTY, N.Y. – A 75-year-old woman was killed in car crash in the Town of Fayette Monday morning.

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office said that Lindsay Shirk, 38, of Ovid, was driving a 2017 Ford Expedition northbound on State Route 414. Kathleen Irland, age 75, of Waterloo, was driving a 2020 Honda Civic east on Yellow Tavern Road.

Shirk was removed from the SUV through her windshield and taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.

Despite the life-saving measures performed on Irland, she died from her injuries.
