JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. - Officials with the Fulton County Sheriff's Office are investigating a fatal car accident that occurred Sunday evening in the Town of Johnstown, killing one teen and leaving another in critical condition.
Officials say a 19-year-old Christopher Insogna was killed after the vehicle involved in the crash lost control and drove into a house at the intersection of State Highway 29 and Steele Avenue Extension. Insogna was riding in the front seat of the car.
A second passenger, Insogna's 17-year-old sister Kelsey, was thrown from the backseat of the car and is in currently critical condition at Albany Medical Center.
The driver of the vehicle was not seriously hurt.
The accident remains under investigation, though officials believe speed was a factor.
Co-workers of the Insogna siblings' grandparents have established a fund to assist the family in their time of need. Donations can be made by stopping into any SEFCU Branch or sent via mail to: The Insogna Benefit Fund, C/O SEFCU, Attention: Member Group Development, 700 Patroon Creek Boulevard, Albany NY 12206.
The location of Sunday night's accident is the same location of a fatal accident that occurred on November 18, killing a 73-year-old male pedestrian, who lived in the home that was hit Sunday night.
The man died from injuries he received after he was hit by a car while getting mail on Route 29.
