Upon arrival, the first responders found the vehicle unoccupied, with the airbag deployed. Crews immediately began to search the surrounding area to locate any potential victims. Despite the extensive damage to the vehicle, no injured parties were found at the scene.

In order to prevent further airbag deployment and to disable any ongoing alarms or horns, the first responders disconnected the vehicle’s batteries. As a standard safety precaution, this ensured that there would be no additional hazards during the search and subsequent investigation.


Once law enforcement arrived on the scene Clyde FD handed over control of the scene to the New York State Police. After the transition, all emergency units were able to return to service.

The circumstances surrounding the accident remain under investigation by the NYSP. As of now, no further information has been released about the owner of the vehicle or any potential charges.
