WESTMORELAND – The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a crash that occurred in Westmoreland, and they’re asking for the public’s help.

Deputies say around 3:30 p.m. Friday, 59-year-old Debby Perry of Rome was driving her 2007 Chevy Trail Blazer westbound on Lowell Road when a smaller black pickup truck with teal on the sides failed to stop at the stop sign on Moore Road.

Deputies say Perry attempted to swerve and miss the pickup truck, then lost control of her vehicle, crossed the road and struck a tree on the southern shoulder, which caused the airbags to be deployed.

Perry was transported by COCVAC to be treated for minor injuries. Deputies say she was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash, which prevented serious injuries.

The Sheriff’s Office is trying to identify the male driver of the other pickup truck. Anybody who may have witnessed the crash is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 315-736-0141.

The Westmoreland Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
