EAST BLOOMFIELD, N.Y. (AP) - State Police say two people who died after a two-car crash Friday morning south of Rochester were a husband and wife.

The accident on state Routes 5 and 20 in the town of East Bloomfield in Ontario County took the lives of 71-year-old Robert Hoag and his 63-year-old wife Elaine.

Troopers say they were killed when their vehicle spun into the oncoming lane and was struck by another vehicle.

Robert Hoag was pronounced dead soon after the crash at Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua. Elaine Hoag was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester in critical condition and died later that day.

State police say the driver of the other vehicle was not injured and had no passengers.
