390 Crash Victim Was Young Greece Woman

State Police say the woman killed this week when her car slammed into the back of a disabled truck was 25-year-old Shelby Tilson of Greece. 

Questions are now being raised about why it took troopers more than 20 minutes to respond to calls of the disabled truck on 390 southbound, during which time Tilson's car hit the truck.

State Police spokesman Mark O'Donnell says the first call came in at 1:17 p.m. and it was dispatched one minute later. But the trooper assigned to investigate was finishing with another accident on the Lake Ontario State Parkway, and wasn't cleared to leave that scene for 23 minutes. O'Donnell says it might not have made a difference since Tilson apparently didn’t see the orange cones around the truck and crashed into it.

Troopers are investigating what caused Tilson to run into the back of the truck despite the warning devices.
