Innocent Driver Blamed After NY Cop Drives 74 in 40 MPH Zone Without Lights, Sirens, or Seatbelt, and Dies

New details have been released by New York State Police in the case of the Whitesboro police officer who crashed and died while speeding with his lights and sirens off in an April 11 incident.

Whitesboro Police Officer Kevin Crossley, 34, was traveling at 74 mph in a 40 mph zone without wearing a seatbelt, and without lights and sirens to warn others of his dangerous driving, reported WKTV.

The driver of the vehicle that was struck by the speeding officer, Nicole Moshier-Harris, was ticket for failure to yield the right of way.

NY troopers say that a witness statement and video from a nearby business show Crossley was going eastbound on Oriskany Boulevard when he collided with a Chevy Avalanche near the intersection of Westmoreland Street.

Crossley was taken to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Utica, where he was pronounced dead. The Onondaga County Medical Examiner’s Office said he died from multiple traumatic injuries.

Moshier-Harris was also taken to the hospital and treated for a leg injury before being released.

New York State exempts police from the seatbelt law, but the Whitesoboro Police Department policy and procedure manual states anyone operating a village vehicle is required to wear a seatbelt.
