State Police in Remsen is investigating a crash on Starr Hill Road in Oneida County.

On February 8, 2021, at 9:16 a.m., a 2010 Freightliner tanker truck was traveling west on Starr Hill Road in the Town of Steuben when the operator, 32-year-old Jared T. Moon, failed to negotiate a slight right curve in the roadway.  The vehicle’s passenger-side tires exited the paved portion of the roadway, causing the tanker to lose control and strike a large tree.  The tanker then rolled onto the driver’s side.

Moon was pinned inside the vehicle and was extricated by members from the Remsen and Western Fire Department.  He was transported via Mercy Flight helicopter to Upstate University Hospital with internal injuries.

State Police were assisted at the scene by the Remsen Fire Department, Western Fire Department, Mercy Flight, and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Spill Response.
