A collision between a motor vehicle and a farm tractor Monday left one dead and three injured.

David Huse, 56, of Karker Road in Warnerville, was killed after his tractor was struck by an oncoming vehicle on Little York Road. The force of the collision sent Huse flying off the machine and flipped the Ferguson farm tractor with an attached mower on top of him, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. State police in Cobleskill were called to the scene around 6:40 p.m. Monday. Schoharie County Sheriff Anthony Desmond was already at the scene.

Police said that a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by 20-year-old Courtney Chichester, of Little York Road, crossed into the oncoming lane and struck Huse's tractor.

Chichester and her front seat passenger, Joshua France, 19, of Cobleskill were wearing seatbelts and sustained minor injuries. They were transported to Cobleskill Hospital, treated and released, police said.

Chichester's back seat passenger, Katie Haag, 19, of Tuslor Drive in Richmondville, was not wearing her seatbelt. The force of the collision sent her headfirst into the front windshield, police said. Haag was transported to Albany Medical Center where she is in stable condition, police said.

The state police accident reconstruction unit is assisting state police in Cobleskill in this ongoing investigation.
