Sheriff’s Office investigates one-car fatal crash

The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office reports the investigation into a one-car fatal auto accident which occurred on Bulls Head Road in the Town of Stanford at approximately 3:15 pm on 9/28/14.

Preliminary investigation has shown that Peter J. Wing, age 67 of the Town of Washington, was operating a 1936 Morgan Supersport 3-wheeled vehicle when he lost control on Bulls Head Road near Shelley Hill Road. As a result, the vehicle then rolled over and Mr. Wing, who was the only occupant, was ejected. Mr. Wing was transported by ambulance to Northern Dutchess Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation into the cause(s) of the crash is continuing by the Sheriff’s Office Crash Investigation Unit and at this time rear tire failure appears to be a contributing factor.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the New York State Police, Town of Stanford Fire Department and Town of Milan Fire Department. More information may be released as it becomes available.
