The Chenango County Sheriff’s investigated a one car roll over motor vehicle accident on County Road 39 in the Town of Afton. The accident occurred at about 1:30 pm on Sunday.
The operator of the vehicle was Steven D. Nickerson, age 64, of Afton NY.
Nickerson was headed west on County Rd 39 when he went off the westbound shoulder of the roadway striking an earth embankment and overturned. He was pronounced dead at Tri-Town Hospital.
It appears that Nickerson suffered a heart attack prior to the crash which caused him to exit the roadway and strike the earth embankment.
