On July 22, 2022, at approximately 7:34 a.m., State Police responded to a fatal crash involving two motor vehicles on State Route 11 in the town of Burke.
A preliminary investigation has determined that a 2013 Audi A6 being driven by Zackrey J. Peck, 28, of Ellenburg Depot, was travelling west on SR-11 and crossed into the eastbound lane of travel, striking an oncoming 2019 Ford F-250, being driven by Mark W. Boyer, 51, of Chateaugay, NY.
As a result of the crash, Peck died at the scene. Boyer sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.
