State police have released the name of the woman who died in a three-vehicle crash on the Thruway in central New York.

Troopers say 29-year-old Joel Sitts of Utica was driving west on Interstate 90 around 10 a.m. Thursday when he rear-ended another vehicle that was slowing down due to traffic in the Seneca County town of Tyre.

Police say the car Sitts crashed into then rear-ended the vehicle ahead of it.

A passenger in the first vehicle struck, 62-year-old Cathie Garrison of Oswego, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, 72-year-old Clifford Wilder of Oswego, is in good condition at a Syracuse hospital.

Sitts and the driver of the third vehicle weren’t hurt. He’s been ticketed for unsafe speed and following too closely.
