MALONE - A 16-year-old Malone teen was killed in a motor vehicle-all-terrain vehicle collisionat approximately 6 p.m., Wednesday at the intersection of State Route 30 and County Route 28 in the town of Malone.

Troopers said their investigation at the scene revealed that a 2004 Suzuki ATV, operated by William C. Derochie II, 16, of Malone, was traveling with an uninvolved 2009 Yamaha dirt bike west on County Route 28 at the intersection of state Route 30.

Derochie failed to stop at the intersection and pulled into the path of a 2011 Dodge Durango traveling south on State Route 30, operated by Trina M. Lewis, 35, of Constable.

Lewis was unable to avoid Derochie and struck the ATV, causing Derochie to be ejected. A back seat passenger in the Durango was transported by Malone Rescue to Alice Hyde Medical Center in Malone where he was treated and released for minor injuries.

Franklin County Coroner Brian T. Langdon responded to the accident scene. Derouchie’s body was transported to Alice Hyde Medical Center for an autopsy. The accident remains under investigation by the New York State Police in Malone and the Troop B Collision Reconstruction Unit.
