Locke, N.Y. - The Cayuga County Sheriff's Department says a snowmobile driver killed in an accident with a farm tractor earlier this month was legally intoxicated with a BAC of .11 at the time of the collision.
Frederick Kussin III, 55, of Dutchess County was killed when his snowmobile collided with a farm tractor on Cloverleaf Drive on January 4th.
Kussin was taken to Cortland Memorial Hospital but died on arrival.
The tractor operator, James Ball, 58, was not injured.
