A Moravia man has been charged with manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide in connection with a fatal crash that occurred on Route 90 in Homer last October.
Back on October 31st, 2014 State Police, and Homer Firefighters responded to a two car, fatal, head-on collision between Sweeney and Foster Road.
The investigation revealed that a 2011 Ford dump truck, owned by the Town of Sempronius and operated by 27-year-old Tyler Bloodgood of Moravia was traveling westbound on Rt-90, when he crossed over into the eastbound lane and struck a 2011 Ford F350 pickup traveling eastbound, operated by 38-year-old Raymond Wamsley of Stamford, NY.
Wamsley was pronounced dead at the scene.
Bloodgood and a passenger in Wamsley’s vehicle, 50-year-old Herbert Roe of East Meredith, NY were transported to Cortland Regional Medical Center and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The investigation revealed that Bloodgood was texting at the time of the crash. A Cortland County Grand Jury has indicted him on four charges including manslaughter in the second degree, criminally negligent homicide, reckless driving and use of an electronic device.
Bloodgood was arrested on a sealed indictment yesterday. He is due to be arraigned on the felony charges in Cortland County Court on Thursday.
