The driver of the damaged car, Jared Jones, 20, of Palymra, Wayne County, was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital on Saturday. Jones, also a 2015 Palmyra-Macedon graduate, was treated and released Sunday, Colella said. Mark and a passenger in the RV were not injured in the crash.

Calling hours for Krebbeks will be from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday at the Robert L. Yost Funeral Home, Inc., 123 W. Main St., Palmyra. A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday in the Palmyra Cemetery.


An online fundraising campaign established Sunday is collecting funds for Krebbeks' family to help pay funeral expenses. The gofundme campaign, as of Tuesday evening, was more than halfway of the way to a $10,000 goal. More than 100 people had donated nearly $5,900 by that time.

Numerous donors also left well wishes for Krebbeks' family, including his mother and stepfather Christine and Dan DuVall; father Brian Krebbeks and sister Danica DuVall.

The Palmyra-Macedon Central School District will have grief counselors on hand for community members this week. Counselors will be available from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. through Friday at the high school, 151 Hyde Parkway, Palmyra.

Authorities continue to investigate the Saturday crash that killed a Wayne County teen after a large grill came loose from a recreational vehicle.

Seth Krebbeks, a 2015 graduate of Palmyra-Macedon High School was the passenger of a car struck by a barbecue grill that became detached from an eastbound RV on Route 31 in Macedon, Wayne County, and struck a car traveling in the opposite direction. The fatal crash occurred about 5:15 p.m. Saturday.

Macedon Police Chief John Colella said an RV driven by Jason Mark of Farmington, Ontario County, traveled over the bridge at Aqueduct Park and struck a bump, causing the grill attached to the RV to swerve back and forth in the roadway and become airborne. The support beam connecting the homemade commercial-sized barbecue smoker "tore the whole frame loose and ripped right off the tow hitch," Colella said.

The tow hitch was still attached to the RV after the grill, which was also attached with safety chains, came loose."We had to have experts come look at it to see if it was properly built," Colella said of the grill and connection to the RV. An accident reconstruction team from the Wayne County Sheriff's Office is investigating and the Wayne County District Attorney's Office will determine if any charges stem from the investigation
