Police have identified a victim in a fatal crash on State Route 23 in Roxbury


Police identify the victim in a fatal crash last week.

New York State Police say RoseMarie J. Windisch, 79, of Jefferson, New York, was killed in a two-car crash that occurred around 10:35 a.m. Thursday, July 21, 2022.

The incident happened on State Route 23 in the town of Roxbury, Delaware County, New York. In addition to the NYSP, several emergency responders were called to the scene, including the Roxbury Fire Department, the Grand Gorge Volunteer Ambulance Service, the Department of New York State Environmental Conservancy and Roxbury Constable.

State Route 23 was closed for several hours during the investigation and reopened shortly before 5 p.m.

According to a written statement from the NYSP, preliminary investigation results revealed that Windisch was driving “east on State Route 23 when she crossed the double yellow line into the opposite traffic lane. His vehicle then struck a Curtis Lumber flatbed truck, which attempted to avoid the vehicle but was unable to do so. It’s unclear what prompted Windisch to cross the double line.

Windisch was pronounced dead at the scene.

The set driver was taken to Bassett Medical Center for treatment of physical injuries described by police as “non-life threatening”.

Witnesses to the incident, drivers with dash cam footage who were in the area at the time, and anyone with information that may be helpful to the investigation are urged to to call the police.
