An early Friday morning accident resulted in the death of a Rochester man.
Just before 5 a.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to the intersection of E. Rochester and Slaybaugh St. in Akron on a report of a single vehicle crash. The preliminary crash investigation by Deputy Abbi Miller of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office revealed a 2000 Toyota 4 Runner operated by Carlos Orduno, 18, of Rochester, traveling east on Rochester St. in Akron. For unknown reasons, the vehicle exited the north side of the roadway and struck a tree.
Orduno was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was found unresponsive when emergency personnel arrived. Despite lifesaving measures, Orduno was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Orduno was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and it is believed speed was a factor.
Assisting the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office at the scene were the Rochester Police Department, Henry Township Fire Department, Lutheran EMS, and the Fulton County Corners Office.
The crash remains under investigation.
