LITCHFIELD – A Sauquoit man was killed in a one-car crash in the town of Litchfield yesterday, according to New York State Police.
Around 11:30 a.m., police responded to a one-car crash on Roberts Road in Litchfield, Herkimer County. Police say 51-year-old Rodney Randall of Sauquoit was driving a 2008 Pontiac southbound on Roberts Road when he attempted to pass a tractor trailer in a no passing zone.
