COLESVILLE, N.Y. — A married couple were killed in a two-car crash that injured another man in Colesville Tuesday.
State Police and sheriff's deputies were called to the intersection of North Road, Sanitaria Springs Road and Colesville Road.
An initial investigation determined that a southbound Subaru entered the intersection of Colesville Road and Sanitaria Springs Road. A westbound GMC hit the driver's side of the Subaru, causing the Subaru to roll over and come to rest on the side of the road.
The operator of the Subaru, Edson L. Kitchen, 56, and his wife, Mary L. Kitchen, 54, of Bainsbridge, were killed in the crash, police say.
The driver of the GMC, Christopher J. Condon, 42, of Binghamton, was taken to Lourdes Hospital for minor injuries. He was later released.
One neighbor says crashes are all too common at this intersection because drivers run stop signs and speed.
She says it's particularly difficult to watch it happen.
"Nauseous,” said Colesville resident Vicky Marble. “Not shocked so much. This happens a lot. It happens a lot here. This is the first fatality in a long, long time. It just happens so much."
Marble hopes officials come up with a solution quickly to make the area a safer place to drive and avoid future collisions like this one.
The Broome County Sheriff says the county highway department may have a study done and take quicker action, but there's only so much his department can do.
The crash is still under investigation by the Broome County Sheriff's Office Accident Reconstruction Unit.
