The back-seat passenger, 23-year-old Trevor Rice of Oneida, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Wade was airlifted to SUNY Upstate Medical University with severe head trauma and he is listed in critical condition.

A front-seat passenger, 23-year-old Brett Moyer of Oneida, was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Upstate Medical University with non-life-threatening injuries.
