A 62-year-old Lee Center was killed in a serious crash on Harris Road in the Town of Lee.

Oneida County Sheriff's Deputies say Donald Perusse traveled across the intersection of Harris Rd., and Streun Rd., and then traveled to the West shoulder of the roadway and drove off the road on Harris Rd.  The front of Perusse’s Jeep struck a large tree causing the Jeep to spin around in the road.

Several witnesses arrived at the scene after hearing the collision and were able to remove Perusse from the Jeep before it caught fire. Perusse later died at the hospital.
