When responding Sheriff Deputies, Taberg Fire Department, and AmCare Ambulance personnel arrived on scene at about 1200 AM they encountered a serious single motor vehicle accident.

The vehicle, a 2008 Honda, driven by a male identified as Christopher Rhodes, age 26 of Rome, NY was the sole occupant of the vehicle. Emergency Medical Personnel evaluated Rhodes and determined that he was deceased.
