4 children among 7 people killed in central NY crash

Authorities say the seven people killed in upstate New York when their minivan was hit by a trailer

TRUXTON — Authorities say the seven people killed in upstate New York when their minivan was hit by a trailer include four young children and three adults in their early 20s.

Cortland County Coroner Whitney Meeker tells The Associated Press Thursday morning that all seven victims, including four children under 10, were local residents.

They were killed and a man was injured when their van was hit by a trailer that broke away from a truck on Route 13 around 6 p.m. Wednesday in the rural town of Truxton, about 25 miles south of Syracuse.

Meeker says the children were from two different families, including one from Truxton.

Authorities haven’t released the victims’ names.

Officials say the trailer was loaded with crushed cars when it disconnected and slammed into the van.
