An Allegany County teenager is now facing charges in connection with a fatal crash that happened in Livingston County in August.

Nathan Poddany, 18, of Canaseraga, Allegany County, is charged with criminally negligent homicide. Sheriff's deputies say he's also facing a charge of unlawfully dealing with a child in a separate, but related incident.

Livingston County Sheriff's Deputies say Poddany was driving on White Road in the town of Ossian just after 5:30 p.m. on August 18 when his truck veered off the road and hit several trees before landing on its side. Poddany's passenger, 16-year-old Connor Gilbert, also of Canaseraga, was pronounced dead at the scene. Poddany was airlifted to Strong Hospital with serious injuries.
