SHARON -- A Connecticut boy seriously injured in a Sunday crash in Schoharie County has died, state police said Wednesday.

Perrin Delorey, 10, of Westport, Connecticut, died as a result of his injuries Monday, the Westport News reported, citing a school district email to parents.

"As a school community, we express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Perrin,” Westport Superintendent Colleen Palmer wrote, according to the news report. “I send this note out with a heavy heart that we have lost such an amazing little boy who was loved by so many and who exuded life in all he did. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.”

Three others were also injured, one of them seriously, police said. 

The crash happened on Route 20 in the town of Sharon, as a car driven by James C. Delorey, 49, of Westport, crossed the centerline for an unknown reason at about 3 p.m. The eastbound Delorey car then hit a westbound car head-on.

James Delorey was taken to Albany Medical Center where he was reportedly in "stable" condition, according to police. Angela H. Ryan, 47, of Westport, was also injured in James Delorey's vehicle, police said. She suffered spinal and rib injuries and was also listed in "stable" condition, police said.

The driver of the other car, identified as Sherman W. Day, 63, of Mohawk, suffered head and neck injuries. He was listed Tuesday in serious condition at Albany Medical Center, police said.

Police said a passenger in Day's vehicle, whom they did not identify, was not injured in the accident.

The News cited a family friend, reporting Perrin's family was passing through Schoharie County on a weekend trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

The accident remained under investigation; troopers said no charges had been filed as of Wednesday.
