An early morning crash on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation has killed one man and injured another, according to police.

The accident was reported around 8 a.m. this morning on Erie Road in the Town of Brant.

76-year-old Donald Murray of Angola was driving westbound. Murray crossed into the eastbound lane directly in front of a vehicle being driven by 43-year-old Steven Forthman of Silver Creek. Forthman was unable to avoid hitting Murray's vehicle.

Murray was pronounced dead at the scene while Forthman was transported to Lakeshore Hospital where he is being evaluated for what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.

The accident is still under investigation but all indications are that it was weather related.
