PAVILLION, N.Y. (AP) - The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office says icy roads are believed to be the cause of a minivan crash in western New York that killed a 44-year-old man and injured two boys.

Christopher Harnett of West Seneca was driving east on Route 20 in the town of Pavillion shortly before 5 p.m. Saturday when he apparently lost control on the slippery highway. The minivan slid off the road and hit a tree.

The sheriff’s office says Hartnett had to be extricated from the wreckage and was taken to a hospital. He was pronounced dead on arrival.

The passengers, 14-year-old Andrew Hartnett and 10-year-old Jonah Cross, were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with injuries described as non-life-threatening.
