A two-car accident on Oak Street in the city has turned deadly.

Creegan was treated for his injuries at UMMC.
Upstate New York Businessman Carl Paladino is declaring victory in an upset in the tight Republican primary race for New York Governor. Paladino spent millions of his own money to edge out former Long Island Congressman Rick Lazio, who was designated the GOP nominee. Paladino will take on Democratic gubernatorial candidate, state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, this November.
Paladino won Western New York Republicans with 90-percent of the vote. He tallied an unofficial 89-percent in Genesee County.
Manhattan state Senator Eric Schneiderman emerged as the winner early this morning in the Democratic primary race for state Attorney General. Schneiderman edged out Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice in the race that remained too close to call for hours.
Westchester state Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, former federal prosecutor Sean Coffee, and former assistant attorney general Eric DiNallo each bowed out shortly after the polls closed.
Schneiderman will now face Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan in the November election.
