Local Teacher Dies From Accident Injuries

A social studies teacher at Chittenango Middle School has now died of her injuries after she was involved in an accident Wednesday in the Town of Sullivan.

48 year old Colleen Hyland died at a Syracuse hospital after she lost control of her car yesterday on Harsh Road after trying to avoid another car that had just slammed into some guardrails. Hyland's car went off the road and landed in the Erie canal in about three feet of water.

She was on her way to work when the accident occurred and sheriffs deputies say the road was ice covered when both accidents occurred.

The Chittenango School District has now cancelled all of it's after school activities for the day. No word yet on funeral services for Hyland.
