TOWN OF PENDLETON, N.Y. (WKBW) — We've learned the name of the man who died in a weekend accident in the Town of Pendleton. The Niagara County Sheriff's Office says 62-year-old Steven Ocestolo from Lockport was killed when his car went off the road.

The Sheriff's Office says just before 1:30 p.m., deputies found a 2016 Ford Explorer in a ditch with extensive damage after a call on South Transit Road near Heritage Point.

Investigators believe the vehicle was traveling northbound on South Transit Road, then crossed the southbound lanes. That vehicle then struck a ditch and the culvert to a driveway.

Both Crime Scene Investigation and Accident Investigation responded, alongside the Sheriff's Office, Wendelville Volunteer Fire Company and Twin City Ambulance.
