No cause yet in fatal Porter crash

Niagara Gazette — Niagara County Sheriff’s Office investigators say they still have not be able to determine what caused a 56-year-old Youngstown woman to lose control of her car and smash into a tree on Porter Center Road on Monday afternoon.

The crash claimed the life of Laurie Rebon.

Investigators said an autopsy performed on Rebon’s body by the Erie County Medical Examiner “showed nothing’ that would have “contributed to the crash.” As a result, investigators will now wait for the results of toxicology testing.

That testing could take several weeks to complete.

Rebon’s car was traveling south on Porter Center Road, when she lost control of the vehicle about 1 p.m. and veered off the west side of the road. The car struck a tree, before coming to a rest on the front lawn of a home in the 3300 block of Porter Center Road.

Paramedics rushed Rebon to Mount St. Mary’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
