Driver killed, Sheriff’s Deputy hospitalized in crash

TOWN OF CAMBRIA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Investigators are looking into a deadly crash in the Town of Cambria Thursday night. The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy’s vehicle collided with another vehicle.

It happened at the corner of North Ridge and Ridge Road around 7:00 p.m. Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour says the deputy was driving with his overhead emergency lights on when he t-boned a Jeep Grand Cherokee, causing the Jeep to flip.

The driver of the Jeep was identified as 61-year-old Glenn T. Annalora of Lockport. Annalora was taken to Eastern Niagara Hospital in Lockport where he was pronounced dead. A passenger in that vehicle, 58-year-old Mary A. Annalora was taken to ECMC with internal injuries.

The Sheriff’s Deputy was also taken to ECMC Friday morning, Sheriff Voutour said the deputy was in stable condition.

Sheriff Voutour has confirmed that his office is reviewing dash cam video, but that video will not be released to the public.

Investigators are still looking for another vehicle that was in the area at the time of the crash. Sheriff Voutour says about two miles away from the crash site, at the intersection of Route 93 and Route 425, a dark SUV pulled over and yielded to the deputy’s car as his lights were on. The driver of that vehicle could be a potential witness.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 438-3327.
