CNY woman killed in freak car crash
Van Buren, N.Y. -- A woman is dead after a freak accident on I-690 West Thursday afternoon in the Town of Van Buren.
State Police say a vehicle was pulling a boat trailer heading east on I-690 when the trailer threw a tire, sending into the westbound lane, hitting 33-year-old Jennifer L. Miles' vehicle, killing her. Troopers say there were two children in car seats in the back, a one-year-old and four-year-old. They were taken to Upstate for treatment of minor abrasions, troopers say. Miles, of Baldwinsville, was babysitting the four-year-old, the one-year-old was hers.
Investigators say they will be "taking enforcement action" against the owner of the trailer. They say the trailer was unregistered.
Right now, troopers are reconstructing the accident scene as they continue their investigation.
690 westbound is still closed. Cars are being detoured to Farrell Road at the John Glenn Boulevard exit.
