A GoFundMe on-line fundraiser also has been established to assist the family during this difficult time. Karen Zok sent up the GoFundMe and said Theresa’s husband Roger was in intensive care at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester for several weeks prior to the accident in Elba.

Teresa Norton was driving a 2008 Suzuki northbound with her son at about 1:30 p.m. on Saturday in Elba. State Police say Norton lost control on the snow-covered roadway and slide sideways into the path of a 2011 Chevrolet pickup truck. The Chevrolet struck the passenger side of the Suzuki.

The Nortons were both declared deceased at the collision scene by Karen Lang, Genesee County coroner. The accident happened on Route 98 between Edgerton Road and Batavia Elba Townline Road.
