New York State Police are investigating a fatal head-on crash that occurred in Vernon Monday evening.

Police say just after 5 p.m., 27-year-old Jacob Ross of Vernon was driving eastbound on Skinner Road in Vernon when his vehicle crossed the center line and struck a vehicle driven by 18-year-old Gabrielle March of Munnsville.
