UPDATE: Freeville man killed in Route 13 crash

Police identified the victim and cause of a crash between a car and tractor trailer on Route 13 this weekend.

Isaac Miller’s car veered into the path of a tractor trailer around 2:45 Saturday morning near the intersection with Route 366.

State Police say an autopsy confirmed Miller’s blood alcohol content was .23%, nearly three times the legal limit.

The truck eventually ended up on its side on the southbound side of the road.

The driver of the truck, Alexander Spagnola of Tully, was taken to Cayuga Medical Center with minor injuries and released late Saturday.

No citations have been issued in connection with the crash, which has been determined to be accidental.
