BROADALBIN -- State police are investigating a car crash at the intersection of Midline Road and Route 107 that took the life of a 27-year old Amsterdam woman Friday.

Katy M. Peterson, 27, was traveling north on Midline Road in Perth at approximately 6:10 a.m. After stopping at a stop sign, she continued northbound on the same road.

A second vehicle driven by Schuyler P. Duross, 24, of Johnstown, was traveling east on Route 107 and failed to stop at a four way intersection, striking Peterson's vehicle at the driver's side door.

Mayfield State Police Inv. Brian Schweigardt said when police arrived at the scene, Peterson's PT Cruiser was found at the edge of a corn field on the south side of Route 107. Duross' pickup truck was found on its side on the northbound side of Route 107.

The coroner pronounced Peterson dead at the scene.

Schweigardt said Duross was not injured, however, a press release said he was transported by private vehicle to be evaluated at the local hospital.

Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company responded to the scene. Fire Chief Scot Hall said the company had to use the jaws of life to extricate Peterson. They also provided traffic control.

The roadways near the intersection of the collision were closed for more than six hours to allow investigators to map the scene. No tickets or charges have been filed at this time and the fatal collision is still under investigation by officials, including the Troop G Collision Reconstruction Unit.

Broadalbin Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Inc. also responded to the scene.
