Glen Aubrey, NY (WBNG Binghamton) New York State Police confirm that the two-car crash that happened Tuesday afternoon in Glen Aubrey was fatal.

The call came out around 4:45 p.m. on State Route 26 near Leekville Road. That's near the town line of Nanticoke and Glen Aubrey.

Troopers said Bhrett Berg, 34, of Johnson City, was driving his car south on Route 26 when it crossed into the opposite lane while going around a curve and hit an SUV.

Berg and Michael Smith, 49, of Homer, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Passenger Gail Renninger-Smith, 50, of Homer, was taken to Wilson Memorial Hospital for treatment of her injuries.

A medical helicopter was initially called out because early reports indicated serious injuries.

Just before 5 p.m., however, the helicopter was canceled.

State police were assisted at the scene by the Broome County Sheriff’s Office, the Maine Fire Department, Maine Ambulance, Broome Volunteer Ambulance, the Glen Aubrey Fire Department, the Whitney Point Fire Department and the New York State Department of Transportation.

The investigation is ongoing.
