The man injured in a head-on crash with a tractor-trailer in Bethany less than two weeks ago, has now died.
Sheriff's Road Patrol Chief Gordon Dibble confirms that Gene Kelsey, 70 of Oakfield, died Tuesday at Strong Memorial Hospital, after suffering internal chest injuries in the January 20th crash on Route 63.
Kelsey was driving his pick-up truck southbound on Fargo Road on January 20th, and deputies said he failed to stop before turning onto Route 63. Kelsey's pick-up drove head-on into an oncoming tractor-trailer.
Kelsey's passenger suffered only minor injuries, and the tractor-trailer driver George Volwerk, was not injured.
Kelsey had been charged with several traffic violations following the crash.
