Woman Killed in a Rear-End Crash With a Truck

Woman Killed in a Rear-End Crash With a Truck

A woman died in an accident after her car hit a dump truck in the back. The rear-end crash happened on the highway in the Town of Barton on the afternoon of October 14.

The Tioga County Sheriff’s Office got a call around 1 p.m. and responded to reports of the crash on State Route 17C. According to the police, a 2005 Honda Civic driven by thirty-four-year-old Crystal VanDusen was going east when she hit the back of a Tioga County Highway Department dump truck. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The police closed State Route 17C was closed near Shepard Road for about seven hours.

The investigation into the rear-end crash is continuing and if you have any information about the crash contact the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office at 607-687-1010.

Rear-ended accidents are very common and very often have a deadly outcome (especially if a smaller vehicle hits a larger one).

If you happened to be involved in an accident like this or lost a loved one in such circumstances, you should contact an auto accident attorney. No matter whose fault it was, you have the right to file for a compensation claim. No matter how mild or severe injuries you have, make sure to get medical help after the crash. This report will help you later with the insurance company. Even if the accident happened because of your fault, don’t hesitate to contact an attorney and get legal advice. You may be eligible to get a claim. 

To make sure you’ll do things right, let your attorney guide you. Insurance companies aren’t fond of paying large amounts; your attorney won’t settle until you get your deserved claim.

Free Case Review




  • I am writing to let you know what an outstanding job George Gridelli did for me in my personal injury lawsuit. His professionalism and expertise were evident at our first metting and he and his paralegal Diane D'Andrea took care of me as if I was a friend and not merely a client. They both went above and beyond for me in so many ways that it would be too numerous to list and I am grateful to have had such an exemplary team represent me. When working with George and watching him in court he personified to me what a lawyer is supposed to be - an honest, extremely compentent man who helped guide me through the legal system. I could not have obtained better representation anywhere else at any price. To me that says a lot abut you and your firm's integrity. Thank you again for representing me and for having such stellar individuals working for you! I will continue to recommend your firm.


  • Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.


  • Cellino Law is an amazing firm with a great team. I worked with Greg Pajak and his assistant, Tracey Falconer. I cannot express enough how dedicated they are. The personal attention I received was excellent; they were always available to help with questions and concerns and put me at ease in the unknown territory I found myself in. I highly recommend them to anyone needing representation. A huge thank you to them for all they accomplished for me!


  • I highly recommend Cellino Law to anyone involved in a car crash. I worked with Michael Lovecchio, and had a wonderful experience given the circumstances. He was very attentive, and got the best possible outcome I could have wanted.


  • Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.


  • Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,

    Danielle and Joe
