The incident occurred in Waterloo near the Ontario County border.

Authorities believe a preceding bar altercation may have sparked the deadly confrontation that took place around 1 a.m. on Route 96.

Waugh, who was visiting Waterloo for a wedding and had formerly lived there, was pronounced dead after being transported to Geneva General Hospital.
