Elmira, N.Y. —

A Chemung County Sheriff’s Deputy and a town of Ashland resident were killed Sunday in a two-vehicle accident on State Route 427.
Chemung County Sheriff Christopher Moss said that Deputy Jeffrey Alexander, 26, of Elmira, was pronounced dead at Arnot Ogden Medical Center. The second victim, a 77-year old whose name is not being released until the next of kin is notified, was pronounced dead at the scene by Chemung County Medical Examiner Craig Banfield.
Moss said that at approximately 11:13 a.m. Sunday Alexander, who was on duty, was traveling in a north/west direction on State Route 427 when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Alexander’s vehicle entered the south/east lane, where it struck an oncoming vehicle.
Shortly afterward, Wellsburg State Trooper Greg Vaughn responded to the scene of the accident. He found Alexander’s patrol car in a field on the east side of the roadway with severe damage to the front driver’s side of the vehicle.
Also at the scene was a grey 2000 Chevy Malibu which had also suffered extensive damage to the front driver’s side.
Vaughn said he made contact with Alexander and tried to contact the driver of the other vehicle, who was unresponsive and trapped within the vehicle.
Moss said State Route 427 was still closed at 7 p.m. as representatives of the State Police Accident Reconstruction unit began their investigation.
Alexander was a member of the Chemung County Sheriff’s office since 2006. He is survived by his mother, father and fiancée, Lindsey Holden.
