Fatal Crash on Cattaraugus Reservation

One man is dead following a two-car crash this morning on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation.

Erie County sheriff’s deputies say at just after 8 a.m. on Route 5 near the Brant town line a car driven by 76-year-old Donald Murrary of Angola crossed into the opposite lane and hit a car driven by 43-year-old Steven Forthman of Silver Creek.

Murray was pronounced dead at the scene. Forthman was taken to Lake Shore Hospital where he is being treated for what deputies believe are non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies are continuing their investigation but say it appears the cause was weather-related.
