According to Oneida County Sheriff, Robert M. Maciol deputies responded to a 2-car serious personal injury MVA on Route 20 in the Town of Bridgewater around 1:30 PM approximately half a mile east of Route 8.

The Criminal Investigations Unit is investigating the crash with the assistance of the Forensic Identification Unit.

At this time, we have determined that Edward Cutler, 51 of Taberg was operating a 2017 Chevy Malibu eastbound on Route 20. The front passenger of Cutler's vehicle was his wife, Michelle Cutler, 43. The rear seat passenger was his mother Barbara Cutler, 72 also from Taberg. Edward and Barbara were both pronounced deceased at the scene. Michelle was transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in critical condition. Michelle was later transported to SUNY Upstate Hospital in Syracuse and is now listed in stable condition.

The other vehicle involved was a 2010 Subaru Forester traveling westbound on Route 20 being driven by Lindsay Bellair, 27 of Brookfield. Lindsay is in critical condition with serious injuries at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. One of the passengers in her vehicle was her 5-year-old son, Zander Boucher who was pronounced dead at the scene. The other passenger, her 1-year son was transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and then transferred to SUNY Upstate Hospital and is now listed in stable but serious condition.

At this time, we have determined that Bellair’s vehicle crossed over the double solid yellow line and struck the other vehicle head on. We are reconstructing the crash to try and determine what may have caused the collision.
