MAYFIELD – State Police are investigating a fatal car crash that happened Sunday morning in Fulton County.

Troopers say Justin DePaula, 34, of Broadalbin, was killed when he was ejected from a vehicle on County Route 155 in Mayfield.

They say the Mercedes he was traveling inside was speeding westbound when it hit a sign going around a curve.

That caused the car to topple a power pole and strike an embankment before landing on its side off the road.

Melissa Vincent, 38, of Broadalbin was also ejected from the car.

She was airlifted to Albany Medical Center where she is listed in stable condition with multiple injuries.

The investigation is ongoing and State Police are looking for any possible witnesses to gather more information.
