Sheriff Joe Gerace says a car driven by 22-year-old Jeremiah Burgess was traveling west on routes 5 and 20 at 3 a.m. when the car went out of control and crashed into a concrete abutment in the ditch on the south side of the road.

His passenger, 22-year-old Jeremy Long of Silver Creek, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Burgess is 6 feet tall and weighs 270 pounds. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s office.
