A Livingston County teenager is dead following a one vehicle accident in the Town of Ossian.

Gilbert was a passenger in a truck operated by 18-year-old Nathan Poddany also of Canaseraga.
Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies say Poddany lost control of the vehicle causing it to run off the highway, strike several trees and roll over.
Poddany was air lifted to Strong Memorial with serious injuries.
