FLOYD, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say an 84-year-old woman has been killed in a head-on crash in central New York.

State police say the wreck occurred at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Oneida County town of Floyd. Troopers say Dorothy Battelene’s Chevrolet Equinox crossed over the center line on Route 49 and collided with a pickup truck.

The New Hartford woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The pickup truck’s 51-year-old driver has been taken to a hospital in Utica for injuries that aren’t life-threatening.

It’s unclear why Battelene crossed into the opposing lane.

The crash is under investigation.
