A young life is lost in a weekend crash in Genesee County.
17-year-old Collin Crane was killed on Saturday night in a two car collision on Route 33 in Stafford.
State Police said Collin was alone in his car, westbound on Route 33 shortly after 6 Saturday night.
For some unknown reason, Colin’s car drifted into the eastbound lane and he struck another car head-on.
That car was operated by 49-year-old Carmen Vega of LeRoy.
She was taken to Strong memorial Hospital with a leg injury.
Trooper Samuel Tagilenti said Vega tried to avoid the accident but she "ran out of road and time."
Collin Crane was pronounced dead at the scene.
Collin was a senior at Batavia High School.
A Facebook page has been established in Colin’s memory.
Many of his friends and classmates have left pictures and tributes.
